cusp of spring bento

Late February is bringing in colored wafts of spring with trees in pink and white petaled bloom and in my rainy yard today, violet iris unfurling. The tight buds on our lilac tree are starting to open:

In the bento, a watercress bed for smoked salmon and cream cheese sandwich (with perky green apple Scotty!) endive and fennel frond, cabbage-beet pickle, stir fried asparagus and a crunchy pink radish all taste like the cusp of spring here today...
