I decided to start with my garden, taking a cue from last Saturday's 40 degree daytime temperature, I thought that it would be best to first get in a few of the cooler weather crops until I am sure that the danger of frost has passed. I planted 2 long rows of peas, 200 onion sets, 4 rows of green beans and I threw in some garlic bulbs....although I think that it is best to plant garlic in the fall, I wanted to see what they would do...'cause I just don't have enough stuff to do.
I was very excited to see that, not only did my fruit blossoms survive the frost, the trees are absolutely laden with blossoms. As I was planting the garden the fragrant flowers were wafting their scent into the breeze reminding me how much I love springtime. Well, there was also the occasional hint of liquid hog manure being sprayed on the neighbor's fields, but I guess if that is a sign of spring as well....I'll take it!

As I was taking pictures of the blossoms, I discovered this robin nest nestled tightly in the lower branches. Such stunning blue eggs.
