My Thyme Scented Creamy Fennel + Asparagus Soup represents one of the many ways I like to celebrate asparagus’s arrival and the joy of Spring’s bounty.

By time asparagus spears are hitting the farmer’s markets here in Seattle, the weather has warmed and the days have grown longer.

Come Summer, I’ll be loath to have anything hot, but this time of year a bowlful of something warm and light hits the spot.
