Signs of Spring

We have been blessed with some beautiful days here in Floyd this week. Today’s temperature was 70 degrees with sunshine. I love it. We spotted this coltsfoot blooming on the backside of the gap. It is always the first wildflower we see blooming.

Our rhubarb is coming up. Makes my mouth water just looking at it.

Buds on the lilac bush!

And clothes on the line.

All these warm spring days make me want to get some projects done.

The gate going into the chicken lot was in bad shape. We cut a few new pieces and fixed it up pretty good.

At least, it opens and closes better now.

And, of course, I had to dig in the dirt.

In this bed, I planted a few green onions, lettuce, spinach and kale. It may be a little early but I just had to take a chance.

Our project for today involved trimming back the grapevine.

We raised the vines up higher and put one of our benches under it. I anticipate it to be a shady place to sit and rest this summer after working in garden.

One more picture of the pond. Mama goose is already on her nest and papa goose is standing guard. Oh, I almost forgot, last night we heard the spring FROGS. That makes me so happy. I love to hear them.

Enjoy your day and God bless.
