Soup Service

I love asparagus season.  Asparagus season is springtime.  It’s the time of year when the snow is all melted and you wear a coat when you leave the house in the morning only to wish you’d just worn a jacket by mid-afternoon.  I always imagine the tender tips of the asparagus stalks starting to pierce the ground into the very last bits of snow piled up on a garden plot somewhere.  Lovely image, isn’t it?
