I invited Ellen and Michael to dinner next week, hoping for cooler weather on Wednesday, and so far it looks perfect: a mere 70'F. I am thinking of making a rabbit terrine with pistachios, and either braaing a butterflied lamb leg (I know, meat!) or making the unlikely sounding but delicious chicken bouillabaisse. Or even real bouillabaisse. It is a September habit, but perhaps it is time to break it. In the meantime, the clematis (Etoile Violette) has bloomed again after I cut it right back. It looked dead, it acted dead, the leaves all died. And witness the resurrection.
The Agastache "Black Adder" flowers forever.
And I have moved more strawberries to the roof. Not sure if that is a good thing. We'll see.
Terrace, cheese, figs. Cat on guard up above. Tomorrow I will prep the pots on the roof for cool weather leaves.
