Lafitte In Green

The trees in the park... Some fresh green beans for lunch... A few of the kids playing soccer.

Just a little green
Like the color when the spring is born
There'll be crocuses to bring to school tomorrow
Just a little green
Like the nights when the northern lights perform
There'll be icicles and birthday clothes
And sometimes there'll be sorrow

(Joni Mitchell, Little Green)

MARCI - si aca tambien hace mucho calor, mas o menos 30 grados.

DEBRA - in France they're traditionally sautéed with garlic, parsley and some butter.

MURALIMANOHAR - yes, it's from Joni Mitchell's album "Blue", my favorite.
