Springtime...

The weather broke in Charlotte. Not that we've had weather anything LIKE the rest of the country. During the winters here, the weather "breaks" every 24 to 48 hours, leaving us never too weary of "winter."

But it was chilly. I know I did a run or two when the temps were in the teens, and, frankly? That was cold.

But now, there's that soft air everywhere. And what did I see when I pulled up to the farmers' market today? Herbs.

And since my window box, the only garden I get in this apartment, got pushed to the side and relatively forgotten (hm. Not relatively. Let's just go with forgotten.), I knew what I had to do.

I bought chives, oregano, dill, basil, thyme, rosemary and mint.

It's a good start.

Do you know how jealous I am of herbs at a farmers' market in February?! Wow. The snow melted here in Buffalo for a whole day on Friday. It was the first time I've seen grass since November.

I cannot wait until spring will come here, too. I guess I’ll move to Charlotte. I love the spring “scent”, that fresh air that surrounds us. I am so jealous of you right now. Nice herbs, though.

I wish our farmer's markets were open. Colorado has had a very warm weather as well. This week is has been in the high 60s. It isn't fair to everybody else, but I'm not complaining. I can't wait to get my garden going soon!
