A few of my favorite things so far this Spring.

Some of my favorite things so far this Spring:

Chives: the chives have seemed to really enjoyed the cold Winter. They are blooming like crazy and I really need to use them in the kitchen before the heat slows them down!

  
Asparagus of Spring!

Spring means asparagus! Roasted for about 20 minutes at 400f, squeeze a little lemon over them and your fed! Nothing better! Season with olive oil, salt and pepper, and sometimes dill.  

Taking Gus for a car ride. In this picture he had spent the day at North Carolina State University veterinarian teaching hospital to donate blood for their emergency clinic.

  
And hidden Raleigh: The Pullen Park carousel dates from about 1900, making it one the earliest Dentzels still in operation. Its paramount feature is a menagerie of 52 hand-carved wooden animals,

  
And more hidden Raleigh: JC Park trail- a secret little park which I like to think that I only know about!

   
     

Did I mention Gus?

  

And more Gus
 
And my daily Iced mocha latte

  
And now out to the garden… See you around dinner time!

  1. That looks like a great park to hike in. Probably full of wildflowers too.
