OK, so Spring has officially arrived – that’s it – you can stop waiting. To celebrate the extra day, Spring has arrived in February! Prove it, I hear you cry, OK – 3 reasons that I know spring has come…
1. On the way to work I spotted hawthorn bursting into bud and stopped for a nibble
2. On the way home I picked Wild Garlic leaves just poking through (be certain they are not Lily of the Valley – looks simular, smells very different obviously!)
3. Whilst picking said Garlic to be added to chicken, tomato and basil sauce, I collected enough Field (Arrow/Sheep) Sorrel to go in my tomorrow.
What more proof do you need? Here’s to good foraging in 2012, she says raising a delicious glass of 2010 blackbery wine : )
