Happy Spring Equinox, everyone!

Today marks the first day of Spring. Spring means the return of non-root vegetables to the Farmer's Market. Spring means strawberries, and longer, warmer days, forsythia and dogwood blossoms, and having to shave your legs regularly again.

I'm celebrating by planting this sage seedling I bought yesterday. I've already started mentally bookmarking cocktail (...and food, I guess) recipes to use it in. I'm also thinking of working from my backyard this afternoon. And maybe howling at the next full moon (March 27th, if you'd like to join in). Anything is possible. It's Spring!
