Signs of Spring

A short little trek around the backyard revealed some promises: iris, sedum, knockout rose, and lily—all poking through the brown earth. What a welcome sight!!

I am trying out a new blogging program, Windows Live Writer, a free download. Sorry, I didn’t make a link but I’m sure it can be googled.

In response to a request by a commenter, here’s the recipe for Irish Sweet Potato Soup:

3 medium sweet potatoes—peeled & cubed

6 medium carrots—peeled & cubed

1/2 onion—chopped

4 cloves garlic—crushed

2 sticks celery—chopped

6 cups chicken broth

1 t. salt


Put all ingredients in a dutch oven and simmer till soft. Blend with immersion blender till pureed.

Fingers are crossed that this actually publishes and doesn’t wreck my blog!!!!

Young growth is daring to sprout in your yard. I have been out looking myself, your soup sounds delicious.

I, too, have sedum, iris and lilies popping their heads up. Along with chives and French taragon. O yeah!
