Spring Has Sprung!

Even though we had a mild winter, New Englanders are still very happy to welcome spring.  Everything is turning green, flowers are blossoming, and perennials are making their reappearance.  It was sunny and in the 70s  today - a perfect day to work outside.

Our sandy front slope is finally filling in.  Violets are taking over, and the vinca is finally spreading.

One reason I love Lady's Mantle - those deep leaves hold drops of water.

Flowering Quince

Bleeding Heart

Circle of peas with lettuce in the center.  By the time the peas get tall enough to shade the lettuce, we'll have eaten it all.  At least that's the plan.

Marsh Marigolds in our swampy back 40.

   Skunk cabbages really love having wet feet.  I know they're weeds, but what a great shot of green before much else is growing back there.

The flamingos make me laugh every time I see them. They know they are not allowed in the front yard !
