Last time, I wrote about the different flowers starting to bloom in the front yard. I think it has now reached its peak of blooms.
As I was driving home to park my car in the garage. I paused to take this view from my car window.
I've always felt awed and a little envious of people's beautiful front yards, especially the English cottage garden types. In that moment, I felt the same awe sitting in my car. Ten years later, I now have my own enviable (to me, anyway) California spring cottage garden.
Meanwhile, in another corner of the front yard, the asparagus spears are reaching for the sky. I took a quick picture insitu and proceeded to cut them off the ground, before they turn into tall ferny stems. Now, I'll have to figure out how I'll cook them for dinner - roast, steam or stir fry? Whichever way, we will enjoy a satisfying, healthy meal.
Update: I grilled it.
