I think the previous owner of our house worked in landscaping. Heaven knows he wasn’t a carpenter and didn’t do much home maintenance, but it seems like he really put some love into our yard! Everything’s been dry and dormant through the winter but now that it’s starting to get warm we are excited to see what beautiful new perennial plants peek out to brighten up the yard each day, it seems like there’s something new sprouting or blooming, every time we visit!
crocuses and daffodils
sunny bunches of daffodils are bursting out everywhere
violets on the shady side of the house
mystery bush: what is it? we’ve been eagerly watching the buds grow and open, hoping to figure out what kind of a plant it is. still a mystery – looks like a purple cauliflower bush!
we have SO much rhubarb. Richard makes great rhubarb pies!! Any other recipes to suggest?

Woke up early to go meet the mason and talk about restoring one of our chimneys. Beautiful misty morning drive.
