Below you see "Snow Drops" now fully in flower. In the Northeast these beautiful flowers are the first heralds of the coming Spring.
I love a Chartreuse border. To create one, I use the following plants:
Annuals: Nicotania ("Havana Green"); Perrenials: Alchemilla Mollis (a Must), Euphorbias, Hostas ("Royal Standard"); Thymus ("Golden Dwarf"), Heuchera ("Key Lime Pie") mixed with Milium Effusum Aureum and Beris Gold Torch.
Below, from my friend Monique Duveau's book "Secrets de Cuisine," is a colorful spring salad of Escarolle, Dandelion, Chicory, young Spinach, Nasturtiums, Violets and Thyme blossoms. Monique recommends a curried Vinegrette dressing with shallots and garlic bread croutons. Enjoy!
