The haze of pink on the flowering trees is turning to green, and the maples and oaks are starting to leaf. I love the pale green of new leaves before they have gotten dusty from smog and heat. I hope this time we will get the promised rain (last storm we only got a fourth of what was forecast).
Another green: in the garden, my spinach is coming up, as is the new chard, kale, cilantro, and salad greens. I have been eating the romaine that seeded in the fall and the chard plants that weathered winter. Delicious!
