In our town there’s a wonderful farmer’s market, where you can find all kind of fresh fruits and vegetables coming from the hills nearby. Today we went there and we bought a lot of seasonal greens, like black cabbage, pumpkin, corn salad, celery, leeks and Jerusalem artichokes.
Jerusalem artichokes (Helianthus tuberosus).
Corn salad (Valerianella locusta).
Common medlars (Mespilus germanica).
Red apples (thinking of Cat Power singing Smog).
We love old doors, made of wood worn down by the passing of time and framed with stone. Don’t you?
Suddenly the sky turned white and the air colder, looks like if the winter is coming…In a quiet Sunday at home, we prepared one of our favourite cakes, made with chestnuts flour, raisins, pine nuts and rosemary. Simple and warm.
The indian summer goes on and the town is wonderful in its autumnal hues, but we’re too busy with our jobs to go hunting for new pics. This photo was taken last summer and reminds us of a calm afternoon in a half-deserted square in the city centre.
It’s indian summer here right now (or St. Martin’s summer, as we use to call it), we’re living days of cloudless, deep blue sky and mild temperatures.
We’re longing to reach the mountains and the woods.
