It's springing here, and the gardens are starting to grow; unfortunately it's just weeds right now, but weeding and planting aren't far behind. I've already managed to start and lose one flat of flowers, hopefully my second try will work better.
It's what we call our little 5-acre farm. Looking out our back window we can see a hill covered with blackberry brambles -- our brambly hill, if you will. The ones that are left are starting to show green leaves, so it must be spring.
