Spring comes to Ladybug Lane


Spring has finally come to Ladybug Lane!

We’ve finally had a few warm days followed by three more days of rain and then yesterday and today were fantastic. The daffodils are blooming, grape hyacinths, hyacinths and tulips are doing there thing. The herb garden is waking up. A lot of work has to be done there. Our little orchard is coming to life. This is it’s fourth year and it looks like we’ll have apples, our pear tree is blooming and hopefully the plum, too. A hazelnut flowered for the first time during the winter. Unfortunately, only one and this variety isn’t self-fertile so maybe next year another will bloom. Blackberries and raspberries are leafing out. The rhubarb is looking good. And, the onions and leeks I left in the ground last fall are growing like mad. I’m hoping I get a few leeks as big around as a baseball bad. Anyway, here are a few photos.

A resident of the “30 square miles surrounded by reality,” I spend most of my time teaching economics and statistics to undergraduate students. I enjoy, naturally, economics and business, but also science (I was once an astronomical observatory assistant), politics, photography, food, travel and sports. Madison has grown quite a bit since 1978 when Governor Lee Dreyfus made that remark. According to Wikipedia, Madison is 67.3 square miles of land and 16 square miles of water.
