Birds Corner

In the garden we have an old, wooden birdhouse which we fill with seeds and bread crumbs every day. The birds know about this special corner of The Blue Café and are regulars. But often when they come their corner is already occupied by Mr. and Mrs. Squirrel and one or more of their kids. The birds wait in line, some days patiently, some days making alot of noise and even starting small fights.

I want everybody to feel welcome in The Blue Café, and when I came over this ceramic house a few weeks ago, I knew it would be a perfect extention in my outdoor serving area. It is not big, and helds no more than one or two birds at a time, but it's a perfect waiting room, or may be I shall call it a bar, where the
guests can have a starter while waiting for their favorite feeder to be free.

My sister who lives in Italy just visited us and brought a lot of basil, tomatoes, zucchinis and aubergines. We made bruschette for a quick lunch as we all like it very much. I'm very curious what kind of new recipes you'll bring along.
