“April hath put a spirit of youth in everything.”
~ William Shakespeare
April, you’re a chilly and wet one this year. I’m behind on where I’d like to be in the garden because winter held on so long and, more recently, because I dislike working outside in cool weather. Peas and spinach are slowly–oh, so slowly–coming along. The other day I transplanted lentice and sowed radishes in the potager garden in the back yard. I’m determined to plant arugula, kale, and more lettuce in the community garden plot this week. I’m watching the weather like a farmer waiting or the perfect opportunity.
Meanwhile the lilacs are forming, what will become, the loveliest and most fragrant of spring blossoms before too long. I captured a few images on the weekend and yesterday, when it was too cold for me to go outside, played with different edits. An added texture layer gave an old world look to these ones.
