Alici (anchovies) in Salad with Chickpeas - MLLA 31By Brii
I'm really enjoying every day, even the last foggy days
winter is a good period of thinking, dreaming, hoping and waiting
this is my favorite tree, it is a Quercus Pubescens - Downy Oak
it is the last to loose it's leaves, but the first to have new ones.
actually it arrives in April, with both and old leaves!
it was one of the trees we found here when we bought the house. we have 8 oaks, 13 olive trees, a mulberry tree
and a small forest of Robinia Pseudoacacia - False Acacia. I love when the spring wind blows and dissipate the small perfumed white flowers of the Acacia, all over the lawn.
it is so romantic :-)
but now, I enjoy seeing the Jasminus Nudiflorum starting to bloom. every day it have an new yellow flower. it feels the Spring is coming! :-)
I wanted to try something different with the chickpeas, the first time it came out rather good.
even Ilaria (one of our 7 cats)liked it, she eat the part I had put away to make the photo, even the chickpeas!
this is not the first time she does that! :-DDD
