Hello spring, true spring, the spring we thought would never come!
The garden loam is ready to receive our offerings of bean seeds, tomato seedlings and various other alms we’ll present to the earth in an attempt to coax forth a bounty of goodies come July and August.
We look at each spring day as a gift in our part of the Ohio River Valley as the gentle temperatures last about as long as the truncated lifespan of the short-lived mayfly. We all too quickly sink into the heat and humidity of a summer that lasts well into October.
So we close our eyes and breath deeply of the good spring air while it lasts.
And pray for asparagus.
Spring is the best time of the year. Ours is over all the blooming trees and shrubs are done. We now have summer temperatures down here in the South.
Summer temps are moving in on us, as well. Never enough gentle spring, is there? 🙂
Spring has definitely sprung in your neighborhood. 🙂 Enjoy each of those asparagus spears.
Thanks, we will! Many never even make it into the kitchen 😉
Cheers for Spring and Best Wishes for Tomatoes and Asparagus.
Indeed! 🙂 Can you grow asparagus in your next of the woods?
I think so, in winter. Still working on my so called soil for vegetables.
Good luck with your soil! We recently discovered a good source of horse manure at a nearby race track! 🙂
Ha I have greyhounds
Beautiful pictures! And, yes, welcome, Spring. In Maine, as in Ohio, she has taken a long time to show her pretty face.
Thanks, Laurie! Glad to hear Spring has finally shown up for you, too! 🙂
Bright yellow-green against an impossibly blue sky–spring has sprung!
88 degrees here today…we’ve gone straight on into summer, it seems 🙂
We can never seem to get enough! 🙂
What a wonderful season.
Our spring burns away into summer all too quickly. 90 degrees F here today. The tomatoes love it, the peas and I do not. 🙂
That’s how I felt in Minnesota–spring disappeared way too quickly. On the other hand, I grew fabulous tomatoes. Here I’ve given up on them.
