Flowers and showers...

I was all set to do a post, with pictures, of all the signs of spring's approach I've seen--the apricot and peach trees in bloom, the grape hyacinths popping up on the hills, even the wild asparagus that we've collected for our frittata.  Oh, and I can't forget to mention the spanish lavender which is an early bloomer too..but alas, the March rains have returned and it promises to be wet all week (at least it's not snow!).  If the sun peaks out later I'll take some pics, my camera is at the ready.   Have a good "last week of winter" everyone!

I do so hope you are right about it being the last week of winter. Oh well a chance to get our March entry for Italy in Books read.

Hi Diane - asparagus already goodness me! Here in Burgundy rural France it is still very cold in the mornings - they announce good weather this week but we won't have asparagus until May at least.

Diane, thank you so much for visiting my blog and telling me so! Montana is so different from Italy & I will enjoy reading about south of Rome.
