The snow shovels have been put away for another year.
The crocuses are popping up in the lawn.
The yellow ones appeared a few days ago...
...and now the purple ones are up, these ones even had a busy bee amongst its petals.
My Oregon lupins are poking up too and in a few weeks will be waist high.
Even my oregano is anxious to see the light of day.
These crazy bulb onions come up and year-by-year are spreading across the lawn.
I saw my little phoebe for the first time this year. She's back to her old nest and has touched it up with fresh mud and lichen.
And its rhubarb crisp time too. I made this yesterday afternoon with frozen rhubarb from last year, making room for this year's crop.
