First signs of spring

We have been loving the rains these past few days - so needed for the farmers and gardeners in our region. The rains have brought all kinds of new green to life in our yard...elderberry bushes and currant bushes have young green leaves, fruit tree buds are starting to form, pink rhubarb tips are poking out of the soil, chives, garlic, parsley and onions are sprouting, herbs are reviving - and wild woodland flowers like bloodroot are already almost done their flowering time...such a beautiful hopeful time of year!
