This is our old guy, Shackleton, asleep in his favorite spot, waiting for spring. Luckily, the snow has melted and I'm hoping that was the last of it for this season. Now that it is officially spring, I have high hopes that it will actually warm up and that green things will sprout from the ground. The stark reality, however, is that it could still snow, and things don't really start growing until May.
In a burst of optimism, we did purchase our vegetable seeds a couple of days ago. Soon we'll have seedlings all over the place, and in late May, they'll be in the ground. I am most looking forward to zucchini flowers, stuffed with goat cheese and herbs, battered and gently sauteed in olive oil. Anticipation can be a wonderful thing!
