The fifth cycle of the Micro-Bakery begins, and oh, the Spring is beautiful! The French Country Levain turned out beautifully as well, I might add.
The morning began grey and rainy, the wind coursing through the open kitchen windows. Thankfully, the cooler air slowed the dough down on Friday night and made the process more leisurely.
Due to the rain, I car-delivered the bread again, though it cleared up as soon as the first loaf left my hands (go figure). Had I known of the sunshine to come, I may have been more apt to dry off the bike seat and ride forth. Hopefully I'll get a sunny day next weekend and be back in the saddle.
The trees and vines are blooming like children, spreading open and singing silently alongside the birds. This is, perhaps, my favorite time of year in Durham.
