Hubby's been busy making and installing spires on our roofs. I think they add to the overall Asian feel of the house.

Sandpaper fig jam

This is the first year the sandpaper figs have looked edible. Usually they are dry and cauliforous. This year they are delicious, but you need to get them at just the right time. There's a tree at the side of our creek that has really delivered. The jam I made from them is as good if not better than jam made from the Mediterranean variety of fig.

Living near the end of the valley....

there are times you can almost hear the banjo's dueling.
