The season of Callery pear bloom...

The Callery pears that were cloaked in colorful leaves barely a week before are now completely defoliated...but, gradually being whitewashed with pretty white flowers...soon, pristine while crowns will grace the landscapes...never mind the foul smell emitted by the blooms...

Spring mix salad....

Salad is one of my favorite food....
Tried spring mix salad...an interesting blend of baby, tender leaves of lettuce (romaine, oak leaf, butter, lollo rosa, tango), mizuna, chard, mustard, arugula, frisee, kale, spinach, tatsoi, radicchio....


experimented with its many versions.....with tomato, onions, citrus, carrot, toasted almonds, raisins, black pepper, they turned out well....and consumption of so much fresh green crunchiness felt healthy....some pictures...


Will be certainly trying with other ingredients like boiled chickpea, pistachio, avocado, crouton, cucumber, bell pepper...

Palomar mountain snow....

On the first week of January we had a hiking trip to Mount Palomar...the conifer and oak woods was lightly dusted with snow....it was amusing to get to see it, in less than 50 miles of semi-arid, sunny San Diego...
