Could Spring finally be here?  It is raining today, but at least I feel like I don't need to start the wood stove.

The rhubarb is coming back nicely this year!

 The Marsh Marigold came back too.  Hopefully this will continue to spread along the banks of the little stream we have in our back yard.  Last year we had a frog take up residence under the leaves!  We would sneak up to take a peek, it would hop out sky high and the girls and I would run screaming in the other direction.

Forsythia in full bloom.  I love looking out my window to see this bright yellow!

  Spring garlic is coming along nicely.  We still need to plant all our other veggies.  Hopefully that will be one of the Mother's Day tasks!


  1. WOW! The rhubarb is QUITE impressive! Can't wait to see how it progresses!

  2. I'll expect to see some serious jars of strawberry-rhubarb jam on your shelves. Tell Dave not to worry about floating fruit!! :)

  3. The marsh marigold looks bigger than last year. It is so pretty. I hope the frog comes back.
