When I saw this dramatic cloud to the north, it reminded me of smoke, rising in billows until it hits the jet stream, then it's pulled hundreds of miles east. I had to capture it quickly. Within minutes the effect had faded.

DirectionsTo make sauce, heat cream and reduce by half. Slowly add 1/2 lb. butter until incorporated. Add lemon juice and zest. Sauce should be smooth and creamy. Season both sides of filets with 1/2 tsp. seasoning. Place 1 tbl. butter on top. Cook in a hot skillet butter side down until lightly blackened. Add butter to the other side and turn. Melt 2 tbl. butter in a saute pan. Add 1 tsp. seasoning. Add julienned vegetables for 45-60 seconds until tender but crisp. Serve filet over vegetables. Cover with warm sauce. Serves 4.
Recipe from John Howie, Palisade Restaurant
For my girlfriends birthday we had a party at her parents. We knew the nest was there but the owner hadn't seen or heard the osprey for a day or two. He asked me to fly my drone up and see if any was wrong. I flew up and found that there were two eggs inside.
The growing season has been great.
The secret to this garden is simple.
I used recycled grass clippings.
