“about the seasons of the year,
Astrologers may make a fuss;
But this I know, that spring is here
When I can eat asparagus.”
-Poor Robin 1808
Yay!!! It’s gardening season. Warm days, cool nights and not many mosquitos, yet. I dug in all the compost , pulled out all the weeds and prepared the earth for planting…..
The beginning always looks so empty.
Soon it will be overgrown and out of control,
bursting with beans, tomatoes and fresh basil!!!

Today is day one (of 5) of Golden Week… a string of national holidays. The highways will be crowded , the parks will be full…the whole nation will be out and about enjoying spring in Japan….I, however, have no plans. Kazu will have volleyball club all day every day. The hubcap is going alone to visit his mom and dad and I will be home with Kayla and Kai…..probably gardening and sewing…. Kayla will go off with her friends and Kai will spend a lot of time playing with his nintendo DS, duel master cards and bei blade….
