A few days ago, when we had some spectacular sunshine, I strolled around my yard snapping photos of flowers, foliage and herbs. The yard is full of these "chameleon" spiders right now. They change from soft yellow to chartreuse to pink and are a joy, and sometimes quite a surprise, to encounter. The rose is Gertrude Jekyll. Click on the photo to enlarge. And since a rose may be used in a number of culinary ways, I'm sending this along to Kalyn's Herb Blogging Weekend #30 as a second offering this week. Kalyn is not only a tremendous cook with a prolific collection of recipes on her blog, she's my favorite low carb guru and an endless source of inspiration.
