A carpet of blue

It just seems that every day gets more colorful in our yard. The Glory of Spring has taken over the bed by our gate and provides a carpet of blue.  So pretty, and so welcome after our long winter.

More Signs of Spring

You may recognize these plants that are coming up in The Shepherd's garden.  Some people call it pie plant and it does make great pie - especially if you mix it with strawberries and put a crumb topping.. strawberry rhubarb pie...yum.  Land'o Lakes has s great recipe on their web site.  Check it out.

The "Glory of the snow" is coming on. By next week you won't see any brown ground will be a sea of blue.

Blackbird sing

I really should have taken a video rather than a snapshot the other day.  These blackbirds were ALL singing at the top of their lungs...I'm not sure what they were trying to settle but we were reaping the benefits with their beautiful music.
