Second flush

New blooms

New blooms

The rose that arches over the steps and reaches alongside the balustrade of the mirador is budding again.

The blooms in this second flush are smaller but no less beautiful.

It’s a reward for cutting off the dead heads of the first flush.

The photo also highlights where the balustrade paint needs touching up…

Trout salad

Five beautiful trout

Five trout fresh from the lake

Giovanni brought us some more lake trout – here they are awaiting preparation.

We had trout salad last night; a beautiful meal – could have been in a restaurant – and so healthy.

I eat the skin but Clive gave his to the dogs and Florence went absolutely wappy over it.
