My Apples and Hops Await Summer

It's like Spring in what I like to call our home's "garden" here in Seattle's Bryant neighborhood. (Really no more than a few planting pockets, truly, on our postage stamp-sized urban lot covered mainly by house, porches and driveway.)

The peony buds are still tightly closed, the golden hops just beginning to emerge, and tiny apples are only starting to form on our espalier. I brought these elements together inside, in an old olive oil bottle here, to brighten another dark day.

Summer's official arrival is June 20. We'll be ready.
