Moon of the Flowers and Blooms
That’s what the Ojibway called an early spring month, and it could certainly describe Rumsey in March 2016. Redbuds, iris, miners lettuce, wild milkweed, and many other plants are blooming up and down the roadside leading into the canyon.
I’ve been using redbud and miners lettuce flowers in roast beet/goat cheese salads. I serve this at breakfast. Both grow in my own yard.
