Buddha's Hand

This post is about Buddha's hand, a fabulous citrus fruit.  There's a video that talks about what it is and how to use it.  What really grabbed me is the woman's exceptional skill at describing things across all the senses.  My vision-impaired friends, you want to listen to this one.

I've never tried this fruit myself, but Harvest Market had some and I smelled it.  The fragrance is amazing -- lemony, but much brighter and sweeter, just celestial.  One of these days I'll buy one and zest it onto chicken or something.

The weather has been cooler here.  We got some rain the other day.  Seen at the birdfeeders this week: several sparrows, a couple of dark-eyed juncoes, and a male cardinal.
