Turkish Blue


I'm just looking back over my holiday photos and remembering the brilliant blues I found in Turkey.  Bee boxes stacked on the side of the road, crystal clear water, nazar eye beads to ward off evil and blue tiled mosques.  Happy memories.

Purple Basil


This morning's foray to the local market yielded a huge bunch of purple basil.  Large serrated leaves that are almost black in colour, flecked with splashes of green. I made it into a salad with tomatoes, dates, olives and a sharp flavoured soft cheese, drizzled with local olive oil.  Perfection!
