haiku

rusty gate -
a spider weaves a web
between the bars

One of the best things about this time of the year Juliet is the spiders' webs.

Dew brings a sparkle
To the fine intricacy
Of a spider web.

(Did I tell you I LOVED haiku?)

I missed the broccoli post until today - but the key to the stems is to peal them as you would carrots. After pealed you'll find that the are much better. The are sweeter than the tops. I like mine steamed with lemon and dill or stir-fried with water chestnuts and roasted garlic.

I always like your haiku, this is one of my favourites I think! The essence of this time of year captured in so few, well chosen words :)
