Or, what a difference a month or so makes! The real spring is here!
Remember when I posted here about the family heirloom primroses, and how sad they looked in the garden with the rocks and the snow?
Here is what greeted me this morning when I left the house –
I shared them on Instagram with the hashtag #notdeadyet 🙂
I also found this as I was getting into take that photo – some little volunteer violets. I think I will leave them be and hope they spread.
And now I see there are some wee weeds in this photo, I will get them out tonight.
I also saw several volunteer lupines in the garden, and I will leave them be, I adore lupines, even though I know they are technically invasive. They grow in the gravel we call soil, so I have to love them. I doubt that these seedlings will bloom this year, but you never know. And I have some more mature plants that will bloom this year and scatter their seeds to the wind for me.
I also have asparagus up! I counted about 16 stalks this morning. Of course, seeing no sign of them on Saturday, I bought some asparagus at the grocery store. We will be well fed on asparagus this week!
