Finally, finally, finally, it feels like spring has arrived. Though it has still been chilly in the morning and breezy throughout the day, we have been spending more and more time outside working, playing, and relaxing. A bunch of seeds went in the ground a few weeks ago, and I am excited to see them begin to sprout. Especially since I was being my usual cheap self and planted some older seed.

The peas are up, despite the seed being two years old.

Radishes aplenty....

Spinach too...

Lettuce, carrots, and onions are also growing, though we are still waiting for the potatoes to poke through.

The rose bush started from a slip of my Grammy's is growing in leaps and bounds.

Our spring bulbs are actually nearing the end of their bright and cheerful life.

Poppies and other perennials are getting a good start along the side of the house.

Hands down, these are the leaves we were most excited to see this spring...

Little leaves on our little apple trees! All four trees have leaves and look very healthy. As Keith says, "I can't wait to eat our own apples in five years!"

So with the yard already mowed once, plants popping up all over and green everywhere we look, I would say spring has definitely arrived at the quarter-acre. (Even if we did have a little frost this morning.)
