Revive the senses through feel-good food. Just do anything food-wise, no matter how small, that makes you zing: pour hot water over fresh herbs for a fragrant tea; buy a whole organic pumpkin for a kitchen table centrepiece; thank a farmer at a farmers' market; put your hands on warm earth; spot a local rosemary bush; snag some for your lamb roast or your hair (Why not? Go nuts!); and comment to share your feel-good spring snippet. If stuck for ideas, mine are yours. Let's unite in support of feel-good food and ethical food practices. Thanks to all too who supported my Spring Feel-Good Food Project. I had a blast! While my food interests are diverse, so is my food writing history (and lifestyle freelance writing and corporate writing, yada...). Please see below right and my new FoodLit Website. Yeah! Please also subscribe for occasional food-fuelled news, ventures and opportunities.

Grounding Spring Bling... Day 53, 38 To Go...

My Crimson Flowering Broad Beans

Words can't capture, photos to an extent, reality (as with everything) in their full glory.

A bonus to the brightness they bring to the winter/spring garden is that they make beans. Even if they didn't, they're still worthy of a plot. Short pods with three or four sweet, tightly hugged beans. Snug, warm from spring sun. More.

Locals can visit to experience the reality. I have seeds available.

Culminating in my idea of spring bling (with hats left on given they're young and tender):

Maybe with a little broth, short pasta and parsley or tossed through a penne pasta with spring cousins, mint, zucchini, fennel, lemon zest and year-rounder, Parmesan, (capitalised as it's earned it).

Polish off and sing. It's spring.
