Spring Rain

April is the cruellest month, breeding
Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing
Memory and desire, stirring
Dull roots with spring rain.
Winter kept us warm, covering
Earth in forgetful snow, feeding
A little life with dried tubers. — T.S. Eliot, from The Waste Land

  1. Everything looks gorgeous! I am dying for fresh, well everything. But the rhubarb and the horseradish root look particularly tempting. Okay, and the radishes and the asparagus and all the herbs. Bon appetit!


  2. That reminds me I want to try a rhubarb tart one of these days.


  3. “loose beets” sink feets?
