Sweet and delicious served simply with butter, a grind of pepper and a few crystals of sea salt.
With the weather finally slinking into fall
the fog, the damp and the rain...
It seemed like a good time to pull out the rest of our beets and do something with them.
a real treat
which we'll enjoy over the winter.
Do you remember Sonny and Cher?
They look so young and in love in this video clip.
Can you see the massive spider's web that has been woven outside our living room window?
It's so intricate.
No sign of the spider though...
I've noticed many webs strung and woven in the garden recently.
Which makes me wonder where these spiders have been all summer long.
When I looked at this web I thought I'd recently seen this design up close.
Then I remembered that I have a pottery bowl by potter Terry Ryals.
The pattern looks rather weblike
perhaps he was inspired by a spider's handiwork.
I don't know how he has achieved this effect
perhaps it's in the firing or a very specific kind of glaze.
All I know is that I do like the finished product.
You can find his works locally in galleries and on Salt Spring Island.
I love to browse galleries for unique gifts for friends and family.
And on a rare occasion I find a treasure that comes home with me!
