Springtime.

Posted on

Well, the calendar says spring but the weather doesn’t. We hit a low of very close to freezing this weekend. I don’t know whether to do heat or a/c in the house. Maryland is like that. Change in weather every day.

At least, the trees and flowers are busting out.

The crab apples have one of their good years. Sometimes they turn completely white, and some they don’t. This year, they are spectacular.

I love my flowering trees. The dogwoods will bloom next. Not there yet.

But the tulips are also blooming. I planted new varieties last fall.

Add to all the blooming, the first harvest from the garden. Asparagus.

Making a steak salad with sautéed asparagus for dinner.

We are so glad to see winter disappear. Time to plant, to harvest, to snip flowers. To protect our young trees from the impending cicada-paloosa. We aren’t looking forward to those cicadas.

Here’s to spring in Maryland. The reason we won’t move away.

About AnnieRie

Retired, I am following my dream of living in quiet west Howard County, a rural oasis, not far from the urban chaos, but just far enough. I love to cook, bake, garden, and travel. I volunteer at Howard County Conservancy. I lead nature hikes, manage programs and show children all the wonders of nature, and the agricultural connection to their food.
