I think spring has sprung in the mountains
Trouble and I took our first walk about for the season this morning. I was able to get around the snow and get to the lower vegetable garden where I had done a winter sow of flowers. The snow has been off there for a couple of days and I have lupines sprouting. Nothing else yet but will be patient. We also went to the vegetable garden that is finally free of snow to check the perennials I had healed in pots and all last fall. The Mountain Laurel looks great. Also the heuchera I received from a friend in Nebraska was showing through the leaf mulch and the Iris from a friend in Montana were starting to grow. The portion of the onion that is free of snow shows the Egyptian onions are starting to grow. Spring has finally arrived on my little corner of the mountain.
