We have reached that part of the winter where I'm ready for spring. Now! It is 18F I think it made it to the low 20s today. Everything is crusted with ice or salt or a bit of both. The seed catalogs have started arriving. I'm looking in my snow covered plant beds with bare stems sticking out picturing flowers and herbs. Maybe I'll grow some Dragon Langerie wax beans again. They're wax beans that are light yellow with purple stripes. They could only be better if the purple color stayed when you cooked them. So I'm sitting looking at pictures of spring and summer bounty waiting for the chicken and rice to finish cooking. It at least smells warm.
