Spring is here!!

Not that I was that dumb and wouldn't recognize blossoming trees, snowdrops, narcissi, hyacinths and such stuff but now, asparagus appeared. Locally grown and for reasonable prices. Spring is never complete with overindulging in asparagus and the resulting stinky pee.
Another spring thing is basketmaking. I got excellent garden shears and we're going out so I intend to get some willow twigs and make a basket or two. Haven't done it for years but I got an Urge. And, obviously, there's the element of irking people. Mom will say that it's useless, other will stare in awe because I'm doing something perceived as difficult while telling them that it's rather easy. (No, I'm not a particularly nice person.}

In other news, dad decided to teach me to drive so if you don't hear from me anymore, it went badly.

  1. Basketmaking is great! I did it in elementary school and since then I never did it again.
    I'm looking forward seeing pictures of the newly made baskets...

    And tonight I'm going to cook white asparagus (from the Baden Region in Germany); for me aswell it's an important sign that spring is (finally) back.

    Happy Easter (or whatever):
