Yep, that’s it; after weeks of dreary weather the Spring has arrived. Okinawa throbs.

I go to buy some petunias.

Petunias, marigolds,nasturtiums, busy lizzies. Yay!

There is a big ceramics market going on.

I wander into the Farmer’s Market to get some vegetables. Vegetables are still very seasonal on Okinawa. You eat what is like, er, you know, ready.

Leek type things are totally in season. I love leeks. Butter, cream.

I plant out all my annuals. Fingers crossed. “In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt.”
