A week ago, we had a brief flirtation with what I like to call ‘Real Winter’: 8 solid inches of snow that hung around for 5 whole days.
Again, I love the South.
But today, it is all spring peepers and songbirds, projects in the yard, windows and doors open to the glorious sunshine. I’m a bit under the weather today, two long catering gigs and the return of the ice-slip back pain (although thankfully without the ice this time)…so this is just a little note to welcome the return of the sun. Two weeks, and it will be GLORIOUS here. I can’t wait for the strawberries to green up and set fruit in the pie garden, and the edible-looking buds to fuzz the outlines of all the trees. I’m ready.
What about you? What’s your favorite thing about springtime? And while I’m asking: what should I cook for the blog this week? I’ve got some (storebought) rhubarb…
Until next time,
