mainly a sunshiny day but I spent a bit less time in the garden…

made potato salad this morning and cooled it in the fridge… have read a number of articles suggesting that cooking potatoes, rice or pasta and then cooling it, does something that changes the structure to “resistant starch” which reacts like fibre and doesn’t cause a spike in blood sugar…

took out the Japanese Maple and set it behind the waterfall…

  
sadly, had to bring it back in when I noticed that the temperature is going to 2 Celsius tonight… don’t want all those lovely leaves to die back…

not quite as warm as yesterday…

 
needed a blanket while I was reading, but I stayed outside as long as I could…

got this shot of the tree next door as the leaves come out… lots of the seeds are coming down too… 

 
still see a gaping hole in the sky when I look up even though it has been at least seven years since the other elm tree had to be taken down… it had provided shade in our backyard from the time we moved into our house in 1973…

trees are so special…
