Here in Paris, Spring has been a real tease. As early as mid-February, some of the trees started to bud, while others remained desolate and bare. Throughout March, we’ve seen bright, balmy sun-filled days alternate with entire weeks of cold gray drizzle (itself punctuated by occasional bouts of sleet). And last week was so cloudy, it was hard to believe the sun had risen at all.
But yesterday was vibrantly sunny and — dare I say it? — warm. Poisson d’avril? Maybe, but today’s looking lovely as well, and I find myself entertaining the hope that the worst is at last behind us.
I’ve even gone so far as to plant my little city garden:
Three kinds of basil, parsley, sage, rosemary, thyme, strawberries, and forget-me-nots. I’m not generally much of a green-thumb, but the urban landscape can make anyone yearn for a little piece of nature, especially when that nature will provide me with fresh herbs to cook with.
This just in: first sprouts, as of this morning!
