The prettiest cucumber soup I've seen :)
I love cucumbers, ever since I was a kid I would eat them fresh by themselves or save them for last when they were part of a salad. When they come into to season here I will definitely make this soup. For some reason I haven't tried making a cucumber soup yet so this will be the one!
