Emeralds and Amethyst in the garden.

April 12, First Asparagus 2012

The asparagus are showing! Gleaming purple nubs, bright and shiny from the earth. I am always surprised by their bright clean appearance from the muddy, gritty soil. Some are taller than this. I accidentally knocked the top off of one while pushing back the winter mulch. Popped it right into my mouth. Vegetable candy!

One of the frogs who call my garden home, soaking up the rare PNW sun from a fragrant bed of oregano.

Things are heating up in Western Washington (the state). Don’t laugh, but 63*F seems blazing hot around here. Still dipping down to 41 at night. The sky is silver with morning clouds but very little (10%) chance of rain. Thirteen hours and 35 minutes of daylight on this Friday the 13th.
