scenes from the weekend + signs of spring


mushroom and beet green scramble


chai tea from soap making extravaganza


a visit to dandelion ranch


pretty pink flowers on the peach tree


tiny fall pomegranates gone to seed


one of many… see below

Spring is not my favorite season. I like it in theory, the little buds appearing on fruit trees, weedy flowers and clover carpeting the otherwise untended parts of the backyard, artichokes, longer days, getting home before dark… that’s all great. But isn’t it just such a tease? It’s windy and sort of warmish if you stand in the sun with a sweater on, but really it’s still cold and my feet turn purple when i insist on wearing sandals to work. arrg. i need summer. now. and it’s months away.

I do love snooping around neighborhood gardens this time of year though. And smelling orange blossoms at night when the bedroom window is open. And figuring out what to do with the colony of baby artichokes forming outside the kitchen door.

Any ideas? I need easy baby artichoke ideas.

    I was just thinking about that! The bright sun and new green leaves outside my window lure me out to play, then I’m reminded I still need to bring a sweatshirt to protect against the breeze. Boo.
