Welcoming Spring

It was a celebration of Spring all weekend, starting Saturday at our downtown Farmer's Market, where Sage stopped to smell the flowers.... ...and Selby picked out a Spring addition for her garden. I ogled the lovely spring bounty of asparagus, delicate baby greens, herbs and mushrooms.Our delight in the season continued with a picnic by the bay front, where Sage sampled some fresh sprouts. After lunch there was playground fun......seed collecting... ...and a walk down to the water.
Sunday consisted of some spring cleaning projects, including re-potting most of our house plants.We also worked on Selby's seed project for preschool. Over the past week, she's collected a dozen different seeds from outside and in the kitchen. She glued them into an egg carton, ready to be labeled. The lesson: seeds are everywhere.Bright flowers, tender produce, sunny bay breezes, rich soil and seeds - welcome Spring!
