Spring is On Its Way

We are enjoying a very warm winter, not to mention dry. I was running around basking in the sun today and noticed that the plants I put in my backyard are starting to attract ladybugs - hooray! Ladybugs are, of course, the superheroes of the garden, devouring many of the unwanted bugs like aphids. I couldn't be more pleased. Other sights that pleased me:

Yay! Blue flowers coming up on this guy. It's going to be gorgeous when it's eventually covered in them!
My rhubarb is coming up! I love its beautiful red and green coloring.

My Meyer lemon seedling is blossoming! It may be a little small to support fruit this year, but I think this is a good sign that it is healthy and growing well in its pot on the patio!

"Do you remember the taste of strawberries?" Yes Samwise, I do, and I hope to be eating these soon!


  1. Wow! Such excitement! So many great plants and signs of Spring. We're still hoping to have a bit of Winter here in Northern California, but my hope is starting to wane.

  2. It looks like you are headed for a great crop this year, Stacy.


Thanks for sharing your thoughts with me!
