The tulips I planted last fall were a big success, but now they're beginning to fade. The flowers are opening wide and the petals are drooping and beginning to fall. But coming behind them are the blue Rozanne geraniums. They're getting bigger, but it's too early for flowers right now.

Some of the tulips, like this one, are still looking good. But not for long.

I'm going to the market in Saint-Aignan this morning to see if the guy that sells his locally-grown asparagus this time of year has any yet. The first asparagus of the season can be a little pricey, but the price comes down pretty quickly. We've seen asparagus in the supermarkets already, but it's likely that it's coming from other regions to the south.


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
