Beauty and Weather and Cassoulet

The weatherman is telling us here in the Northeast we are in for a cyclone, blizzard, snow storm, snow hurricane. Whatever.

I saw this beauty on my walk this morning.

Nature is amazing. Even Holly Bear was awed.

Tomorrow I will post a new, easy recipe for cassoulet. I've been working on it for some time. Seems like a good thing to cook during a blizzard, don't you think?


  1. A beautiful swan surround by a wintery scene..somehow I think of swans as warm weather birds..they seem do delicate and fragile..there must be a tough side to them...I like Holly Bears head peeking under the picture!

  2. Marlene,

    I too think of swans as spring and summer creatures. I can tell you he was not there yesterday or the day or week before. Holly Bear and I walk this route everyday. As swans travel in pairs (they mate for life) I can't help wondering if a female was nearby. Seeing this magnificent bird was a gift! He must have been at least 50 pounds...

  3. Gorgeous! What a thing to see on your walk. I don't think of swans so much as warm weather birds but as solitary creatures. They seem to be surrounded by a sort of serenity I find appealing. Of course, some of that could have to do with the lack of quiet in my days lately:)


Wow. Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I love feedback... what with being a cook and all. I will respond to your comments via email (if you do not have a "noreply" address or here, below your comment) As always, Bon Appetite!
