Rain, Kanoko Ami Pants and A Simple Supper

1   Tremendous storms today and although Tom Lehrer says, “The weather always looks worse through a window,” I did not venture out to discover if he was right today but took these photos from the front porch.

3    Asparagus is now in season and a lovely summery contrast to the wintery weather outside. We had Asparagus and Pesto Pasta with Toasted Almonds and Parmesan Shavings – truly scrumptious!
