Spring greens


Spring cabbage stirfry, originally uploaded by soja.

I maybe yearning for summer weather, I long for warmer evenings and nights. As much as I sometimes think that Spring is nothing more than the end of Winter..... I do appreciate the 'greeness' the new buds on the trees, the shoots pushing up through the still cold earth, and the Spring vegetables. I think that cabbage tastes so different at this time of year, actually delicate and juicy!

I'm also hoping that all the colourful vitamin rich vegetables, along with the antibacterial garlic, cold-curing ginger and spicy chilli will help me get rid of this lingering stuffy nose, cough and cold. Ha ha - I'm hoping they'll put a spring in my step! ;-)

It's a real desire for better weather now. I can't wait. Summer will come to you sooner than me.

Yes, I know I shouldn't be complaining, the weather here is mild. I suppose it's what you get accustomed to, it's colder here than it usually is at this time of year, and the houses and flats are built to be cool, so if it's 15 degrees outside, it's probably 13 in my flat. I hope summer comes to both of us soon!
