Sunday Clippings


This week is a hodgepodge of interesting articles that range from earlier springtimes, a consequence of climate change to a sugary sculpture by the NYC artist Kara Walker. The appearance of green garlic and parsnips means that we are not far off from seasonal produce, and a recipe for warm almond, garlic, and parsnip soup is provided by the Green Kitchen Stories. Spring grabs our attention with color, and we read about the mind-bending influence of color. Have a good week!
