Snap Peas Means Spring

Beneath the soil and mulch, lie seeds of the snap pea, waiting for the water and sun to coax them from their hardened shells.

The delicate white blossom will create a delectable snap pea.
This snap pea is ready to eat.

So happy I got the snap peas planted this spring.  We are having sunny warm days which is encouraging a vigorous garden.  Looking forward to adding these to salad and stir fry.

 Wishing the clouds would shower us with a few more rainy days but for now, it's sun, sun, sun.  Irrigation has been reinstated as the grass was crisping up after multi-days of warm temps and sunny skies.  Spring is peaking around the corner for us in SoCal with plants bursting forth with buds and blooms.
