Lime Tree Update

It’s a miracle! Our dwarf lime tree is back from the dead!

Lime tree miracle

We thought it was a gonner but apparently it was just dormant. =)

Spring Has Sprung!

So, yeah, it snowed the other day… but spring is on its way! I swear! I took photos as proof:

Crocuses: These early bloomers have been out for a couple of weeks already!

The trees are budding and unfortunately I am allergic to tree pollen, but I'm still glad spring is on the way!

The Grass Widow is a native iris of the Pacific Northwest and, according to the internet, is the only member of its genus in the U.S. It is one of the earliest blooming native flowers. This photo was taken on Dad's native hillside.

More crocuses!


We planted this spinach in the fall. We had a spinach salad in February, which was a treat since we don't get many fresh veggies these days.

Bunching onions that were planted in the fall: They stayed green all winter even under piles of snow!

Here come the tulips!
