But it's still so very early for us to be this far along into spring that I had to show you. Our signs of a very early spring are far behind most of you elsewhere in the country, but because it's still about 6 weeks ahead of a normal year for us this far north, I have to document with these pics.
I do believe you could actually see these little buggers (otherwise known as chives) growing if you sat down and watched. The tallest are about 6" high now.
The Leopard's Bane are my earliest flowers to show greenery each spring.
The lilac bushes are budding out.
The buds on the apple trees are about the very same size as the lilacs right now.
We had an all-day rain yesterday (with more forecast for tomorrow) and our rain gauge showed 1/2" which was great to get. Not a huge amount but it came down very gently and soaked into the ground so none of it was lost to run-off. I'm pretty sure it must have taken care of the last of the frost in the ground, too.
Got another post up over on my quilting blog tonight. It was Thursday today, you know, and that means Mama Pea tries to quilt all day!
