Rain…brought basil

Rain downed yucca

We had a lot of rain overnight, the kind that can weigh down a yucca bloom-spike. We had rain after I took this this morning, too, but I think it’s over for now.

Magnolia bloom

I was surprised by this white blob above my head, amidst the glistening dark green leaves. Aha! Magnolia!

Basil for dinner

Basil clipped for dinner…then snipped atop pasta with a tomato sauce.

Even found mozzarella di bufala (that is: water buffalo milk, not cow’s, in soft cheese balls) to also add. BTW, the pasta sauce had bison meat in it. And we also added parmesano reggiano—cow’s milk cheese. I wasn’t going for species diversity in our protein sources, but that’s what we got.
