What is it about Spring that you can hardly wait for?
Picture (and a second recipe) found here.
I have never had it but I do like nettle tea. I may have to give this a go.
I look forward to the early saxifrage. Here it grows very tiny but very thick and lines the path I walk. It is the first wild flower of abundance here. The blooms are so small four or five of them can fit on a thumbnail. They make me happy just to be around them. They tell me of so many other flowers that are coming. Oh, the early spring blooms are the best. Great trillium hiding is another I look forward to seeing.
Ah, a new nettle soup recipe. I’m looking forward to local leeks and asparagus. And any of the early spring flowers brave enough to come up when it seems winter refuses to stop throwing deep wet snow at us.
Watching all the trees put on their new clothes.
Miner’s lettuce (Claytonia perfoliata) – but my chickens get it first!
