It's Spring! Glorious and beautiful with sun and trees blooming in frothy, pastel colors like nature's decreed everything to be covered in lace.  I love it. It smells like earth warmed with light.

Also, my gooseberry bushes survived the winter! And have flowers, which means I shall get fruit this year! Yay! I have forgotten what color I ordered, but I am hoping it was purple. I have long coveted gooseberries. When I was little, one of my favorite paintings in the Cleveland Museum of Art was a small one of incredible looking berries. They were full of light and striped and I thought they must have been made up. (At the time I did not realize that they, duh, were in the room with all the Dutch paintings and all the super, super awesome food porn pictures from the era...so ergo, they must by hyper-real) so imagine my delight when I found out that not only was it a real berry, but it was something that I could grow!

And lastly, as spring produce comes into season and I have to use up my winter squash, I have been making a lot of this excellent stew in my crockpot. So tasty.
