I arrived home a few days ago. The snow is mostly gone, and though it is not as green as Oregon and the flowers are just beginning, it is always good to be home. Fergus was very happy to see me. Even Merlin came to say hello. And this was waiting in the kitchen.
And the house was filled with the smell of hyacinth.
The seeds I started last month are now healthy plants. I potted them in bigger pots and put them back under the Gro light.
it is still a few weeks before they can go outside. Quite a few weeks before the last frost date, but I am hoping to get them into some cold frames before that.
And now that I am home, I planted more seeds. Tomatoes, basil, lettuce, cucumbers and broccoli. And some purple sprouting broccoli that came all the way from Bealtaine Cottage in Ireland!
Outside, now that the snow has melted, the heather is again trying to bloom.
The primroses are also trying again. They are such hardy little things.
There are quite a few things starting. Lots of green tips venturing forth. But the most noticeable are the crocuses.
