I should note that there is also a cherry tree or two growing here on public land, which of course will make our walk rather tasty pretty soon!
Speaking of tasty… Nettles. I haven’t done anything with them yet, but there are plans in the works for some nettles wine, and maybe some cold nettles soup, since they are absolutely everywhere. And, yes, Amelia can now identify them– but we both learned the hard way!
This is the best part. At the end of last week, we saw one bright red poppy. The next day, there were three open, and we have been counting every day. Today? 38!
There is so much to enjoy… With today’s warmer weather, the meadow-y smell was especially rich. What a treat!
