The apple trees are blooming, a warm breeze is blowing–a spring moment in the garden accompanied by the bronze-tones of wind chimes… Every other year we have a bumper crop of apples, and this is the year. The trees are loaded with blooms. Thy are scattering from the trees in the breeze of an incoming weather front, covering the stepping stones in pale pink petals.
I see a fresh rhubarb pie in my immediate future…and fresh strawberries soon to follow.
My pallet experiment last year was successful. The strawberry plants weathered the winter between the slats and are producing an abundance of blooms that should yield berries in early June.
The carrots, sweet peas, kale, spinach and potatoes are beginning to break through the soil. These are the reasons I love spring.
