Mulberry Trees In Texas
A hot day in mid July and I am standing transfixed at the edge of a common milkweed patch, watching a bewildering number of colorful butterflies nectaring on the cluster of drooping, dusty rose flowers. There are great spangled fritillaries and tiger swallowtails, silver spotted skippers and clouded sulphurs, gray hairstreaks and common sootywings, an American painted lady and a painted lady, a black swallowtail and the spectacular day flying hummingbird clearwing sphinx moth. And, of course, there are monarch butterflies..
The mother, Helen (Holly Hunter), otherwise known as Elastigirl, is dedicated to fighting crime, while her husband Bob (Craig T. Nelson), aka, Mr. Incredible stays at home to take care of the baby and the other kids, Violet (Sarah Vowell) and Dash (Huck Milner).
Mulberry didn’t makethis bagfor a long period of time andthey can be tricky to get hold of, especially now it has finished its stint in the outlets. I have the tan colour in both the medium and regular sizes. I had the regular to start with and when I saw the medium size come up, I just had to get it, despite it being the same colour as the one I already had.
Thirteen year old Nate Brodie is the 8th grade quarterback for his school. When he buys a five hundred dollar football, hand signed by his hero Tom Brady, he gets entered in a drawing. Whoever wins the drawing will get one chance to try and throw a football from thirty yards away through a twenty inch circle at a Patriots game.
Chef Christain de Simone has a refreshingly light touch. Dishes such as beetroot gnocchetti with fresh peas, baby broad beans and cuttlefish julienne, or line caught seabass with a sweet pepper pure, are easy both on the eye and the palate. In cooler weather, dinner is served on the upper level of the palmento with a spectacular glass floor built over the barrique cellar below, or in the courtyard in summer.
They are all called the kingdom of Cevola, and each has its own name and no single one is called Cevola, but all together are called Cevola. This one which I have called a city I have named Granada, partly because it has some similarity to it, as well as out of regard for Your Lordship. In this place where I am now lodged there are perhaps 200 houses, all surrounded by a wall, and it seems to me that with the other houses, which are not so surrounded, there might be altogether 500 families.
The stunning effect of the corps is no doubt due to the strict principles governing the dancers’ selection, their scrupulous training from childhood through adolescence (with many aspirants falling by the wayside) and, somehow, to their apparent communal dedication to animating the choreography at the highest level possible. It’s a zeal that never flags but is, instead, renewed night after night. I find all of this eerie and marvelous and feel privileged to witness it..
