I harvested some of the lettuce that I planted on January 30 for a salad! Now if I just had a nice tomato to go with it . . . but that won't be for some time yet. I like the variety of colors and textures I get from the packet I selected.
Spring is hanging on . . . actually, by the calendar, it is Spring, but the it seems it has been Spring for months. We have to be patient, as Nebraska is known for it's ever changing temperatures. A week ago, we turned our air conditioner on . . . now, we are running the furnace. Such is life in Nebraska.
The Jade Crabapple was in full bloom along with the Redbuds.
And then it appeared as if it was snowing . . .
A few of the ground covers are blooming
The Honeysuckle vine is blooming - are the Hummingbirds on their way? We haven't seen any yet, but have heard Orioles and the Juncos are gone . . . so it shouldn't be long.
The tree peonies are blooming to beat the band! It's a shame I can't cut them for a bouquet without jeopardizing next years blooms
The Bleeding Heart continue to put on their show, while the Iris, Peonies and Daisies grow to be next in line
I hope you are enjoying Spring where you are. It is my favorite time of the year. A time with promise of new beginnings.
