Spring has Sprung…Kinda

Well, we got back up here on Wednesday after a couple very warm days in Madison.  Whew, not used to 80’s and high humidity.  Glad to get back to the cool temps up here.  It’s really amazing how quickly things change.  There’s lots more green on the lawn, in the underbrush and tree tops.  The hummingbirds and orioles have arrived and the pretty yellow marsh marigolds are blooming all over the place.   P1100364I’ve seen trilliums blooming…trillium

the first mushrooms of the season…P1100372

and a yellow warbler singing it’s little heart out. yellow warbler

We even stopped at the garden center and got some tomato and cucumber plants to put in the raised beds Jim built last fall.   P1100351These plants will get lots of TLC.  They’ll be fenced in to keep the deer and whatever else is lurking out there away from them.  He also built a framework around the raised bed so if it gets too cold, he can cover the whole works with plastic.  Lots of thought went into our little garden.  Sure hope they do good.  Please cross your fingers with me that we get a few tomatoes this year.
