Gallimaufry#60

Just a gallimaufry of photos 📷

Moss roses


The duo-toned ones are so pretty!


Flower Rolls Flower rolls are soft, pillowy, steamed buns that are common in Chinese cuisine and are comparable to white bread in western diets.

Dongpo pork
Dunk the flower rolls into the flavourful sauce  heaven!

Twice-cooked pork (Sichuan cuisine)
The pork is simmered, sliced, and then stir-fried with an assortment of vegetables  capsicum, Chinese cabbage, leek, etc.

Christmas is coming!

Passion flower

FROM THE TRAVEL ARCHIVES

Buerspassage  2019
Artists used things that end up in Amsterdam's canals to create a walkway that gives the illusion of walking through an underwater tunnel along the bottom of a canal with fish, air bubbles, reflections, an assortment of objects  gliding and floating above you – bicycles, umbrellas, cogs, boat parts, liquor bottles, etc  and yes, Vincent van Gogh's ear!

Can you spot the ear?
Gotta love the Dutch sense of humour!

  4. Dearest Veronica,
    WOW, could not sleep so got up at 4:40 AM and what a lovely surprise to read your post.
    For me this time especially recognizable things from countries where I've lived...
    Those moss roses are a dream to study—and you made them into poetry with your camera.
    Oh, the food makes me able to taste it again—we both love the Sichuan cuisine.
    Passion flowers of course are another miracle flower and we never forget the lovely Markisa fruit and the juice made from it...
    Play it by ear! But you managed to twist the name Beurspassage in Amsterdam😏
    Difficult as the eu is so typical Dutch and German language.
    Your son is a good sportsman and able to climb those boulders!
    Hugs to you from 9°C Georgia,
    Mariette

  28. Look at that handsome kid go! He's on his way to the top (in life as well as at the boulder-climbing gym I am sure!). I love your food photos as always and wish it would appear in real life right here in front of me ;>). Are those flowers blooming around you now? I don't know what your climate is like.

  35. How bright and beautiful those flowers are on a very dark, grey, rainy day. I'm so glad for electric lights! The flower buns look interesting and delicious. Beautiful food to eat with one's eyes as well as with one's tastebuds. Yes, I found the ear!

  47. The moss rose flowers were indeed colorful, Veronica Lee, especially the duo-toned ones. The pillow rolls looked delicious just from the photo. Nice to see the holiday lights across the walkway. When I was growing up, many towns did this, but today not so much.
