“Well,” said Pooh, “what I like best,” and then he had to stop and think. Because although Eating Honey was a very good thing to do, there was a moment just before you began to eat it which was better than when you were, but he didn’t know what it was called.

It is almost March, and western Oregon, bless it, brings spring early. I can smell it, even before the viola odorata blooms in my local park. Here are a few things I am already enjoying, by looking forward to them:
Giving this old barn and pasture some critters to shelter and feed (well patrolled by Sancho).
A new batch of baby bunnies (Momma buns had her first date of 2013 two weeks ago…Snacks is next.) In a month I should be enjoying views like this:
Purple peas are germinating in the greenhouse, soon to be planted in the garden.
And, I bought a spring form pan! I literally have never owned one. Looking forward to lots of tasty tarts in future. This is my first ever cheesecake. It was lemon, and excellent. (Apologies for the terrible flash photo).
Spring is just around the corner! Hope you are enjoying the anticipation as much as I am…..cheers!
