I left Tuscany with blossoms ready to bloom and came back to full-on spring in my own garden. Now to get back into the kitchen and start creating and preserving.
|borage blossoms, you can eat them and also the leaves|
|first pea pods are starting to form|
We also just removed the saffron bulbs from the ground.We will separate the bulbs and replant in fall when we finish harvesting the tomatoes.

This is my favorite time of year, as winter's drab colors fall away and the hills fill with various shades of green, covering the hill like velvet.
We are expecting some rain, which is much needed, but not so good for fotographs.
I am heading down to the weekly market tomorrow and can't wait to shop and get back in my kitchen and cook up some spring treasures!
