Ah, home sweet home. It's nice to be back after my long, productive trip. Spring has welcomed me with little speckles of green dotting the woods...
...the apple trees are budding (we hope we get fruit this year; last year a hail storm stripped the tender blooms from their stems)...
Violets wait patiently for me to harvest them to make jelly (my favorite).
Johny's already eaten several dandelion salads.
Johny tilled the garden with our friend Ronnie, spread horse manure,
He also discovered a new wild edible (to us, it was here before we were), field garlic (wild onions).
Hunting and eating wild edibles is one of our favorite things about this time of year...soon the morels with their uniquely patterned skin will be popping up, and ramps too. I came back just in time, welcome spring!
Thanks for reading my blog, see you tomorrow,
What lovely signs of Spring, Lise!
I was introduced to wild onions by Mexican children while visiting a small farm/ranch in Mexico many years ago. I like the taste. Hugs!
I love hunting for wild edibles! Interesting wild garlic you found! Also love that you eat the dandelions and the violets. So many people miss out!
Oh, and yes, trimming bougainvillea is a PAINFUL experience! :-)
Spring is a great time, but I wish it would stay around. We keep bouncing back and forth. We did get our ocean boat in the water today, ready to go when we have some warm nights to start cruising and sleeping aboard at night. - Margy
Love the photos of spring. I found some violets along side my driveway this week. Reminds me of when i was a child and picked them in the woods to take home to Mother. She always put them into a small glass and placed them in her kitchen window.
We enjoyed them dad, though I think the greens are best raw. The bulbs add a nice flavor raw or sauteed. Hugs back!
Marie, this is just the tip of the iceberg! There are so many wild things to enjoy, and I agree, it's great fun to hunt them.
I agree Margy, we actually may get some flurries and it's supposed to freeze. I hope everything that's budding survives!
That's a lovely memory Glenda. I like the violets in a small vase too.
