|My very first new strawberry leaves! But............... the deer will probably eat them before I ever get a berry!|
|Pretty stump? at least there is some green coming up behind it!|
|Can you guess what this is???????????????? Rhubarb... and the deer DON'T like this and I have plans for rhubarb pie this summer!|
Some pretty branches............. and a couple of birdhouses..........
I've been having fun watching the birds fight for who gets ownership this spring of the birdhouses!
Oh...... I have one little flat of pansies and violas I bought a few weeks ago, and left them sitting out on my front porch......... a test to see if they would withstand the "spring" here in central Oregon! So far they've survived 3 inches of snow, high winds, and temperatures down to 14 degrees! I guess I can plant them now.
And that's about it for color in my yard........ I do miss the wonderful flowers and early spring blooms to the west of the Cascades where I moved from, but I do love the rustic look here of the pine trees, pine cones and mountains, sage, and of course, stumps!
