Just a Little Green

Oh, I am sure everyone is blogging about springtime right now, but I can’t help it. Even though the winter here was rather mild, I am always happy to see signs of all the green that is to come just beginning to pop up outside…
The first teeny bits of leaf on some of our hydrangeas.
Classic late-blooming daffodils all lined up like little soldiers.
And earlier blooming daffodils already making an appearance.
Snowdrops taking their final bows for the year.
I also like try to to keep things a little green indoors year-round. So when the temperature start dropping, I try my best to keep my herbs alive by taking them inside. It isn’t always a slam dunk, but I did have a few successes…
Fresh sage after a ruthless mid-winter prune. (Aphids. It had to be done.)
The prettiest thyme. Perfect for use in tomato sauce (and a zillion other things) when the basil up and leaves.
And some mint, because the stuff is very good in many cocktails. And salads. (Fruit and otherwise.)
And in case you aren’t seeing enough green in nature, there is always a little green around if you look for it…
A favorite hankie.
One of my most beloved cuffs. It goes with everything.
And one of Life’s most essential greens…for when all the other lovely things don’t quite do the trick.
