Lettuce


Well for lack of anything to talk about....who would have thought lettuce could be so pretty? Seriously, I snapped a few pictures of the lettuce, intending to progress to the completed salad I was concocting. But the lettuce was the only fresh thing I came up with. The tomatoes are no good, being of the hothouse variety....my craving for a good summer salad was a little premature. I gave up on the salad but did notice how lovely this simple picture of lettuce is! We are being teased with this spring like weather, high 60's and 70's; it's easy to forget it is dead of winter. I won't start with the spring fever yet, but I did so want a good salad! I will be satisfied with this bit of green for a few more months anyway!

A few more months! I'm expecting spring in another month.

well, I live South of you...and although we might have a bit of early spring, we usually have cold weather right through March!

Ah, yes.. that truly is a sweet lettuce pic. I too am looking forward to warmer days and better tasting veggies. :-)

I so love when my body actually craves a salad instead of chocolate

Oh, won't it be wonderful to have local tomatoes again? I miss them all winter.

That's a beautiful photo, Pat. It looks so crispy and cold and moist. I can just imagine the crunchy coolness in my sandwich. BLT's sound really good for lunch.

i have to laugh b/c you are correct. When seen at a certain angle through a lens, yes, lettuce can be beautiful
