It seems that Spring has finally found us here
on the farm!

the tulips are pushing ...

The moon flower plants are changing colour and it looks like I may have to move them - so much twitch grass has crept in there ...

Can't wait to soon be able to clip some of these sweet chives into my soup and salad ...

Oh, the rhubarb - my favourite treat of Spring (I think I can almost hear it growing) ...

A bundle of Pussy Willows gathered for the first bouquet of Spring!

What a delight to start gathering the baby's things,
to be packed into a suitcase and personally delivered for a prenatal visit in a few weeks!!!
The very best part of this Spring ... a visit with my daughter and son-in-law.

Is your Spring Springing where you are?

I heart Spring !!!!!!

Till next time - counting Robins and enjoying these first days of Spring.


  1. What a very fun event to look forward to...a baby. All your signs of Spring are encouraging I'm sure! Enjoy...

  2. Awwwww...Happy Spring to you, Rosella!! I am glad that Spring has finally showed herself in your corner! And a new baby coming is even more excitement! My youngest has a springtime birthday and it's a lovely season for celebrating!

    1. Thanks Cheryl. The baby is actually due in early July but I'm taking the liberty for a prenatal visit. We are so excited about our first grandchild!

  3. You've inspired me to check on the chives...always first up. Wait. I'll be right back! Yes, just a few sprigs and the coral bells are also up. Progress!

    1. Oh and wanted to say what a happy, exciting time for your family! What a wonderful gathering for the new baby.

  4. I was thrilled to see my chives popping up in the garden, too! And so much happiness with the first grandchild this summer <3 I'm thrilled for you!!!

  5. Ahhh springtime!! It can't come too soon for me! we're not as far along as you folk but it IS coming :)

    So happy for the new arrival on the way!! How exciting!

  6. Just a short while ago it seemed you were so far behind with Spring and now it's coming quickly! And the best part is preparing for a baby!! So happy for you!!
