Spring is here.
Here are some things from the last few days
blending work and play
infusing neighbourhood dandelion, cherry and plum blossom vinegars
while looking for a spot to pee...
working in a pond, there was a little birdie hanging around, and then I came across this sweet scene in the middle of the cattail stand. Realizing I may be causing this sparrow some worry, I stepped away for lunch to let her feel safe and sit
and then some butter-sauteed cattail shoots as part of the evening's supper
when you embrace the health-supprting offerings of our local "weeds"
open your palate to their wild flavours
instead of despair
the sight of them brings joy:
burdock root for tomorrow's supper
"blending work and play"
... which is which?
