Carrots with Yogurt Dill Sauce

We have been between vegetable seasons lately.

The cauliflower, broccoli, and Brussels sprouts are on the way out – and look like they should have left a bit earlier.

The asparagus, artichokes, and peas are just starting.

Whenever there is a vegetable gap we always still have carrots. Apparently carrots have no season. Even when I was a child we always had fresh carrots year round.

I’m assuming it’s because they store well.

In honor of the vegetable that no one raves about but is always around, I will share a few of our favorite carrot recipes over the next few weeks.

We can’t eat asparagus every day….

I saw these small, gorgeous flowering trees this morning on our walk.

The flowers are tight up against the branches. It’s hard to tell from the photos but the bud is pink before it opens.

I’m quite sure it’s not a plum tree as they are done blooming – and they don’t look like this.

But…. they were beautiful, it was a lovely, warm day so I took the photos.

Mental note to see what kind of fruit show up this summer.
