Spring comes to Ladybug Lane
May 5, 2013
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.
