In My Garden Today...I Found Spring!

 

Amidst getting ready to plant 300 raspberry canes for Missing Goat Jam,


and doubling our strawberry beds for mass consumption by the Missing Goat family,


I noticed some quiet watchers in the yard.  They didn't say much, and if I didn't look close, I wouldn't have seem most of them at all.  But, there they were.  Watching, hoping to be seen.  I saw them. 


How could I not bring some of them inside.  It still gets frosty at night.

I am excited to see how you do. I have a raspberry in the ground from last year and it is just a sad little stick. I am afraid I may have to start over with that one. Best of luck!

I can feel spring is nearly here and I too should get stuck into some gardening. You have left me feeling quite inspired...

This is not an extremely bad joke, Heather, it really happened to me yesterday. I am working in a church in the country right now, and yesterday I went outside to get a bit of air. Lying in the grass amongst the tomb stones was a spring - the shiny, coiled, metal kind! Talk about a sign from God!

I must have a good wander round my own garden and see what's to be saved from the frost. Your unassuming spring flowers are lovely.

Gorgeous photos. What a lot of flowers you have already. We just went to the cottage for 3 days and it is still half snow covered and the lake is frozen over.

You're going to have some great fruit in a few months. I can't wait to see what you cook with it.

Just wanted to let you know about a giveaway happening over at my blog that ends tomorrow.

Yeah spring! Let me know when I can come and get all of our produce from your plentiful garden, H! I can only grow so much in our little patch;)

Hi Heather, such a pretty site...but then that was to be expected! Was (strongly) encouraged to enter "the world of blog" by our mutual friend at Vintage Home. Must say, am totally under the influence...with the word "fanatic" just around the corner. Your spring pics are so very lovely, look forward to following your site in the weeks to come.
