spring peas

There is something so refreshing about the color green. Thinking about this color throughout the week, and going to the markets looking for spring greens – not winter kales and collards or anything in that wintry family, mind you, but these delicate first greens of spring, was a calming, almost meditative, affair. Happy spring, friends.

Beautiful! Green is the theme next week at la Domestique as I begin the spring pantry. I love all the photos here- especially those gorgeous artichokes. Bring on spring!

This looks like our garden right now – growing sugar snap peas, onions, kale, spinach, lettuce – it’s all green! :)

Oh I am SO ready for Spring. I wish it would just stop raining and get a lil’ bit warmer! Green is one of my favorite colors!

Beautiful post! And thank you for the names this time! I’m pretty good with food but sometimes there’s that one you just don’t know!

I love spring green. I think I love whatever the season’s color is in the moment.

Lovely photos! Even though we are having a stormy, rainy weekend I felt the light and tenderness of the new season unfolding in your post, delightful!

Can I ask about your photographing techniques? i just saw your kitchen tour on theKitchn and you mentioned having north facing windows and a lack of lilght. All of your photos are so bright and airy…how do you achieve this? i am forced with a kitchen that has no walls with windows…it’s in the middle of the house and I am always struggling with the lighting!

Watermelon radishes! I am now officially on the look out for these radishes.
