Could it Be?

Could it be...

that spring is finally making her appearance?


The last vestiges of snow are clinging to the ground on the north side of the trees and buildings, but elsewhere,

elsewhere




the flowers are tentatively making their appearance. Can you believe that colour!?

And one mustn't forget the rhubarb!


In another five or six weeks give or take a week or two, I will be wondering what to do with it all, but at the same time I'm greatly anticipating making the first rhubarb pie of the season!


Today I did some raking in the yard in the hope that the grass will green up and grow quickly. It was mild enough to work in a sweater, hair undone and make up free. A frightening sight to behold ;o).

My only question now is...


Whatever will we do with this mess!?

Wishing you busy days and lots of sunshine!
