First cutting of asparagus, which actually occurred over a week ago. Second cutting happened today.
A sunflower is such a cheerful thing. This one is in the front yard.
Our started vegetable plants await planting. Low temperatures during several upcoming nights come uncomfortably close to freezing so we are holding off. For now, we bring them out during the day to harden them off.
The rosemary (upper centre) will stay in its pot as will the lemongrass (upper right).
The sunflower adds a very cheery note to our vegetable garden.
Many of the plants in our garden are in bloom now. Here, the spirea.
WordPress have changed the site editing platform. I hope you will bear with me while I figure it out.
Based on what I see I believe our redcurrant bush will be very prolific this year.
My sister-in-law has and tends an amazing flower garden. See for yourself.

This brilliant spiderwort happily lives in our yard adjacent to a tree stump.
Spring will be here soon and our seed order arrived today. Radishes, several different lettuce varieties, snow peas. Buckwheat to sow in the half of the vegetable garden that will lay fallow this year. Flowers including many natives to sow this fall, replacing a good good portion of the turfgrass in the front yard.
Feeding songbirds has the side effect of birds dropping seed throughout our yard, which results in volunteer sunflowers popping up. We generally let them pop up and thrive or not. This volunteer adds cheer to the middle part of the vegetable garden.
