Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

You Know It's Spring ....

... when

... hearts are bleeding;
[These are the first of the bleeding hearts to bloom and it's a volunteer growing in the path no less.]

... when


... hosta leaves unfurl;

... when

... there's a red tinge on the trees;

...when

... snow peas have broken the soil;

...when


... lettuce is green;

...when


...spinach two leaves appear;

...when

...blueberries bud;

...when

...eggs appear in the pond;

...when

... I spot the first dandelion;

...when


...multiflora rose in the woods turns green; and

... when
...the hummingbird migration map shows that the hummers have been here and moved on.
