No, I'm not making a declaration of my political beliefs, contrary to what the title might say. I don't like to talk politics. Besides, this post is all about what's good and right in the world. Finally, we have a perfect spring day. It's not too hot, not too cold and the sun is shining. Best of all, the flowers are blooming, including this springtime favorite.
The violets are blooming all over the yard. Last year, the boys and I made violet jelly. While that was fun, I don't think we'll be repeating that experiment. I'll enjoy the flowers in the yard and maybe toss a few on some salads.
I'm also thrilled to see my blueberry bushes covered in tiny leaves and my rhubarb growing. This weekend, I'm going to dig up some of my mother-in-law's Heritage raspberry bushes to plant in our yard. I hope they do as well here as they do for her!
I can't wait for that first strawberry-rhubarb pie! I love this time of year! What's springing up in your yard?
