I went to take some pictures of the fava bean flowers today, they are really perfect right now. Deep purple centers and tender white petals, they look a little like a snap dragon with a downturned bottom lip and a rounded little head. If I were a planning a wedding, in a truly alternate universe, I'd work them into the floral arrangement somehow. They speak so gracefully of spring and promise.

Of course, while I was out there I couldn't help catching some of the other progress underway. The fancy beans still dragging their heels in opening up, dwarfed for now by the eager peas.

Baby kales,

And the arugula...
