  1. It is lovely to see your garden wake up. It's one of my favorite times of year. My chives and garlic were green and growing all winter. It was so mild here. No raspberries here, yet. It is so such pleasurable work isn't it to get out there and get all of those spring tasks done. Much better than housework ;-)

  2. How wonderful to see these pushing up from the ground. It's been very rainy here so I haven't been able to do much in the garden, but I can see some green there, and the trees are gorgeous!

    Have a wonderful day!

  4. Mary, you have some wonderful plants popping up! What reward for you and your family...I wish I were more of a green thumb. I remember to water my boys' air plants (we have a half dozen varieties!)...does that count? :-)

    1. Me Too!! Right now it is still covered with straw so that it doesn't pop up and get a freeze since our Spring weather is quite volatile ( changing drastically from day to day, at times.) Here in late May it really starts. I remember wonderful white Asparagus in your homeland. Here it is rarely seen but really it is about the same plant.
