Redbud Salad

So I decided to pick some of these wonderful flowers and make a salad. I read somewhere that they have a bitter taste, but that is not true at all. Arugula has a bitter taste. This is closer to the truth.

I didn't have any other greens to mix with the flowers, so I just ate those in the bowl with pepper, olive oil, and rice vinegar for dressing. It was delicious! And you could just as easily add the flowers to a regular salad, to add extra flavor, nutrition, and color.

Also, they're free! See avid forager B^4 for more.

P.S. I've taken 186 pictures since I last downloaded what was on the camera on Tuesday. Here are a few more.

Suet feeder blogging has been absent since the remote for the camera stopped working. Fortunately, this Downy Woodpecker let me approach to a point that was even closer than any I've used to date with the tripod.

Eastern Redbud on Cacapon Mountain

The view out the back of the basement door here in West Virginia has been recently enhanced by the blooming Eastern Redbud, Cercis canadensis.

Bonus 1: Breaking The Law!

Bonus 2: More Deer on the Golf Course

There is a golf course in this post, but the AC/DC has been replaced by deer.

Paiute Golf Resort, Las Vegas

Paiute Golf Resort is about 30 miles northwest of Las Vegas, and is owned by the Paiute Tribe. We played there Saturday and Sunday. Unfortunately, the temperature dropped Friday evening, and the wind was up. Very much! There was even a little rain and sleet on our menu. But it made the sky more picturesque, so I was happy.

P.S. We had AC/DC blasting from our golf cart on Sunday.

Vegas at Night

Carmi's photo theme this week is:

If it lights up, or has anything to do with things that light up, we want you to share it.

Las Vegas lights up in a big way.
