The ferns by Monday will be lush and full this is mid furl and almost unfurled~
The Secret Garden in our borrowed landscape is full of them..at this point I am pulling many out of my gardens..
Invasive..In the woods etc..beautiful..in gardens..invasive..
My humble rhubarb is coming up..I have a few recipes I wish to try..
We had a few rainy days..
And I made Coq Au Riesling again..Google and many many many blogs will lead the way:)
I used Nigel Slater's recipe..but amend as I go along..
This dish is even good reheated .
But on the first day..served with a nice egg noodle or spaetlze as my friend Linda recommended:)
Linda is into her 5th plus week of kitchen renovations..
But what a gal to withstand without complaining.
She is a cook a baker a chef extraordinaire..
So imagine..a family of 4.. no kitchen!
Our Amélanchier is at it's best~ Every season it is at it's best..excapt winter.. but right now after a long winter and full all white blooms..?
As my French favorite bloggers would say..Un poème.
I asked Lucas to guess how old it was?
I think he will remember now..his parents gave it to me for Mother's day the yearCcaroline was carrying Lucas..I said always remember Lucas that beautiful white tree out front..is your age.♥
And the Amandier?
I love that standard Flowering Almond..there is no reason not to.
Graceful..Pretty in Pink..Watatatow.
I do believe winter starves us to be insatiable for rebirth in Spring.
The violas are everywhere.. ene in our salads..white and blue..even in the grass..who cares? BEAUTIFUL!
And in a heartbeat..Lily Of The Valley will be picked in huge fragrant bouquets.
Muguet..a flower my mother adored..and I genetically..inherited her love of it.
This is the perfect time of year to start a garden journal if you have not..even if you do not have a garden.. parks..the forests..cities.. there is always a garden:)
Everything right now outside is simply a miracle.
Somewhere..I saw a deckled edge journal ..I really like deckled edges..
I was keen to have one..
I have some old sheets of watercolor paper..
I decided to rough tear a page and make a small 7.5 x7.5 booklet/journal out of it..
Punched holes and tied with a ribbon.
Fun to make..
PS Just tried the Costco Love Beets..a recommendation from my daughter..so handy..and great tasting..
A moments notice and you can add to salads..:)
And the latest news..
This just in..Sunday late afternoon..from our son-in-law~after a full coolish day in the garden..
Congratulations! You're the nana to your first perfectly healthy speckled brown egg!!
