I love this weather, cool and reassuring after a too-warm, too-dry winter. It's nap weather. Soup weather. Cat weather. Cookie weather.
It makes me dream of what's coming to the garden:
   basil waiting to be whirled into pesto
   leeks to swirl across a chard tart
   French melons small and warm in the palm
   peas climbing toward heaven
   tomatoes for everyone: Sungolds that jump into my mouth, San Marzanos with their saucy 
     girly figures, Mr. Stripey to make kids giggle
Gardens in my dreams.
