Zuppa Arcidossana: hot Italian sausage, spinach and carrot soup, garnished with feta cheese. This was from Mark Bittman back in 2009 and we have made it regularly ever since. Really good stuff.
Every year since 2012, I have noted the appearance of pink roses at or near the top of a fairly tall tree at Adanac and Commercial. I was worried this year because I had not seen them and the vines seemed a bit more tattered than usual as they wound their way up the trunk. But today they were there in full force!

This year, indeed, there are more than usual — at least nine blossoms that I can count; and more widely spread across the tree.
