Colza – Brassica napus

Spring

A colorful season

Farmers busy preparing the fields for planting

Trees with their sprouts

Hope

Sile river…
Countryside…
The variety of hues

The silence only the song of the birds dared to disrupt

Satisfied a hungry soul

Wanting for peace and harmony

All for free…

Thanks for dropping by. Have a wonderful day!

Tulip and co.

One of the things I love about spring are the blooms from bulbs planted in late winter or the same bulbs left on the ground and the repotting of plants and the preparation of our vegetable garden.
Iberis, Tulip, Mascari, a dwarf and the vegetable garden.
Tulip, Anemone and a box with eggshells ready for the compost bin.
Garden beds ready for planting. Companion planting and homemade compost.

Thanks for dropping by. Have a wonderful day!

Bread

Pane di segale “Vinschger”

When they say “there is more to it than what you see”.

The way Sigrid makes this traditional bread and how she explains the procedure to make it seems easier than it is. She prepares the sourdough 3 days before and on the fourth day, she adds these ingredients:

All purpose flour

Rye flour

a pinch of salt

olive oil

water

water

fennel seeds

cumin seeds

Trigonella foenum-graecum L. (fenugreek)

Anise seeds

A lot of passion for tradition and baking

Although I have learned in some way how to make this traditional bread, in the end, I realized that I learned how to make it out of my passion for cooking but most of all, to capture the essence of tradition. Can a picture taken by a photography neophyte able to render the spirit of tradition?

A typical outdoor wood oven.
A variety of Delphinium

A guide once said, “Temperature affects color, often we can see more vivid colors of the same flower in cool northern gardens than in hot summer ones”.

Wishing everyone a restful and pleasant weekend.
