The bottoms of several of our neighbor's fence posts have rotted away, like this one. Another photo with the new mag +4 filter.
Speaking of lamb, it's what's on the menu for today's lunch. We're making a cous-cous, a traditional north African dish adopted and loved by the French. It's essentially a lamb stew, with some poultry, spicy lamb sausages called merguez, lots of vegetables (we will have carrots, turnips, rutabagas, and zucchini), and chick peas. It's served with the tiny pasta called cous-cous, which gives the dish its name.
