Lazy Sunday in Venice

This is, I think, the most beautiful time of year in Venice. I might prefer Winter, for it's bluster and chill (and most importantly, lack of crowds!) but today the sun is warm but not hot, and there's a breeze blowing. All the flowers are in a riot of blooms, and cats and people are lazily hanging out near convenient sunbeams. The drum circle is frenetic, and the people attending more excited, more enthusiastic than usual. The recent rain has made everything green for a while.

Earlier pyr8queen and I took Bluesephalus up to the Venice Farmer's Market. We got fresh blueberries with which I made a pie that's cooling now. (I'm afraid it probably didn't turn out very well, it's more like a blueberry-jelly pie. My pies are always...exciting. Not necessarily good. I just don't have the touch.) We've also got fresh-from-the-cow filets and I'm determined to try one of G. Ramsay's more high-falutin' recipes with a wild morel mushroom creme sauce, some fingerling potatoes and duck fat and sea salt to fry them in, and broccolini with which to, I'm not sure what do with that one. Anyway, it's been a long and lazy weekend which will be capped off with a superb meal.
