Duck Eggs, Asparagus and Echium

24 May

1   The Cornish food market on Lemon Quay was very busy this morning and I bought some delicious Duck burgers which we have just had for supper. The Cornish Duck stall also had dozens of beautiful duck eggs in shades of pale blue and white.

      So delicately blue aren’t they? They look so fragile but in fact are quite hard to crack open.
      Hope Uni is going well! 🙂

    Likes Asparagus, because it’s not Broccoli. Here you can still pick it wild if you know where to look. Steamed Asparagus, butter and a good crust French bread -good shtufffs.

    My father was gaga over all things ducky. Your picture, once again you show a great eye for subtlety. The pastel shade of light blue sit amongst the white -lushes best describes it.

    Now thats an Echium.

    happy sun day

    I seem to veer away from “duck” eggs…but, it’s not what we were accustomed to eating when I was growing up…how beautiful in color…and asparagus…love it…introduced by Mom …creamed on toast…yummy!…

    Fourth meal from our asparagus patch tonight, in a crustless 2-cheese quiche with more asparagus on the side! I should try my neighbor’s duck eggs, shouldn’t I? saw the sign out today.
