Signs of Spring

We had a little break in the rain. The garden was warm and smelled like spring. There were bees out and about. The Anna apple is flowering- it's a really early apple that last year made fruit in June. The fava beans are growing and we're planting potatoes, peas, carrots, and more.

Thank you for this beautiful apple tree Grandma and Grandpa!

It is covered in pink flowers!

Whoa! Look at those favas go!
Your gpa-gma apple tree is beeeeautiful. So far the only daring things in our wintry garden are hellebores started to uncurl, & a few very brave crocuses that open up when it's sunny & close back up on a day like today when it's in the 30's & raining like mad.
