Outstanding work

Thank you SO much, Gary! The first time I realized how exquisite a simple bundle of asparagus could be was in viewing "White Asparagus" by Adriaen Coorte in 1696 and then again with a painting of asparagus on a bed of chives by Edouard Manet in 1880, both such inspirational masters. Thank you again Gary and I truly appreciate your compliments! Jeanne

Thank you so much, Wodjo! I agree, who doesn't just love asparagus? There's something about a freshly picked bundle tied with a bright blue or purple rubberband that symbolizes all the freshness of Spring! Jeanne
