It’s a May Wednesday!!!!!!!………….

And we’re back in Minnesota!! Slowly getting back on a “northern track”….and I mean slowly!!!! We ventured north between major weather systems (snow to the west and massive rains to the east) and, after some brief days in the Northern Black Hills, arrived home Sunday evening. Today is warming nicely and the sun is finally shining!! This is a beautifully Spring photo-heavy post…………IMG_8631IMG_8632     Don’t’cha just love a “cuddle moment”?? Last year we had a significant snow event the first part of May, so………………………….  IMG_8633     Cherry tree (pie/tart) in bloom (above)……….    IMG_8635   Strawberries did well over the winter!!  IMG_8636    Rhubarb!!!!!! Major “YUM”…………IMG_8637   Garlic coming along nicely, with horseradish in the back upper right. IMG_8639      Ferns in the windbreak doing their unfurling “thing”.  IMG_8641    Spring little flowers everywhere in the woods!!!!! LUV………… IMG_8646    Of course, a great batch of perennials!!!!!   IMG_8649 Our little garden cart at the ready…..and, of course, there’s laundry that will bring a bit of Springtime INdoors!!!!

    Welcome home. How lovely to arrive in the spring. Today it is our first really spring like day here in the North UK. I was able to sit outside in a sheltered corner out of the wind and enjoy my lunch in the sun.

      Oh, that sounds so nice!!! I am so happy for you, Lin! Now that our winters have become another summer, I’m so goofed up with what season I’m ‘in’ or coming next!!!!! There’s absolutely nothing like the smell of Spring outdoors “fresh”!!!!! Sending tulip and daffodil hugs your way!!!!

  3. J > Great to be able to go away, better to come home – in Spring. Your rhubarb looks like it needs digging up, dividing, the plot manuring, and the best bit(s) replanting. The rest? Share the love! Horseradish: it grows wild in some parts of the UK (not so much north of Yorks-Lancs, as it likes deep rich soils), but rarely grown in vegetable gardens, and difficult to buy except (with difficulty) as horseradish relish . We make wasabi with it – delish!

      Actually, the rhubarb plant was “decimated” just before this photo by DH. He picked 15# of it for wine and I had just picked some for a dessert. The horseradish is “contained” by the concrete ring that you see surrounding it. That plant would have taken over our whole farm if not for that ring!!! Our asparagus is doing very well but was cut by our son/wife just before we returned and the weather has turned cool enough that we will have to wait a bit for some more of that wonderful vegi!!!!! There really isn’t much that doesn’t grow very well here. Thanks so much for popping in!!! Spring-y hugs………………

    Glad you are safely home, and by your photo’s I see spring is definitely in the air.
