Friday's Drawers - From white to green.

This week it has been awesome to see more green in our own yard than in our farm share box.  There has been so much snow for SO long.  To give you an idea of just HOW long we've had snow on the ground, the other morning I was looking out of Isabella's bedroom window; it was early and I was kind of groggy and saw a mound of white kind of moving back and forth.  Wha?

Dang, I know it's been a long time since my last beer, but really? Moving snow?

Look a little closer.  Whew, not crazy.

It was a white plastic bag stuffed with something blowing back and forth.  Oh wait.

Now it sounds like one of James Newman's novels.

But no, it was our neighbor's Christmas Tree.  In a white bag. Waiting since the end of December for trash pick up.

It snowed so much around here, it completely covered and camouflaged their tree.  Till now.

It's March.

Anyway, nice to see some green.  And here is some more green:

Not sure what the heck is going on with the picture.  I think my smartphone is not acting so smart.  The reason why the pic isn't in the normal spot was because I already had the stove going for those fantastic portabellas.  Marinated in olive oil, basil, oregano and white balsamic vinegar. Yum!
