Happy Spring

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter, and Passover, and generally Happy thank-goodness-the-winter-is-over!

It's a grey drizzly day here, and I shall spend the morning cleaning my house because I'm having guests for dinner. I'm cooking a turkey, because I didn't get to cook one at Christmas, and I love turkey and especially turkey soup. I have some nice local organic greens to go with it, and I think I'm going to grill asparagus, drizzled with lemon olive oil, and cook brussels sprouts in olive oil and salt in the frying pan. I have some new kind of potatoes, I forget what they're called, that are supposed to be excellent for baking so I hope will roast well. And I'm making stuffing. So it'll be good. We have Damasco wine to go with it. The guests are my oldest friends, kp and mkb, and I haven't seen mkb since before Christmas, so THAT'll be good, too. No doubt Tabitha will be thrilled, as both of them are Cat People, and tend to make more fuss of her than of Robinson. Both she and Robinson will get some small bits of the bird, so everyone will be happy.

We had some asparagus on Saturday--such a lovely spring food (though ours was not yet local asparagus, which is still sleeping under ground--it was asparagus that traveled to us from California).

Your primrose in the upper left warms my heart and reminds me of England.

Our asparagus isn't local yet, either - it comes from California or Peru!

Yes - I love that primrose, and it is a real English one; my mother planted it :) I like the celandine in your icon! I have some of that growing in my garden, too.

It looks, at icon size, like celandine, but actually it's marsh marigold, from the wetlands :-)

We do have celandine here--I've seen its leaves coming up, but not yet any flowers.
