You just can't beat this time of year--at least in Indiana. The asparagus is up, and 46 mushrooms were found in my yard (see "Food"). Honey bees are beside themselves feasting on apple and pear blossom nectar. I love watching and listening to them, oblivious to my presence. Ah, Spring--finally!

Joan, I wish I had one or two of those beautiful Bengals!

We also have longer spring/summer daylight hours further north as well, Joan.

Daniel, your forsythia has that wonderful yellow that gives me a lift as no other plant can, and in the spring when I need it! 

Patricia, I think you might be the farthest north of this group. Your husband's greenhouse beautifully lengthens your growing season.

Randy, if it were not for the garden, I would feel pure joy with all those critters, except the ones that burrow under your plants. I will design a vegetable garden for Laura and Larry. They want one and spend way too many hours making their businesses profitable. My plan is to fence off the vegetable and fruit area to protect it from the deer, turkeys, rabbits, skunks and raccoons that regularly come. My grandson already built the raised beds, and we will have screening on the bottom to prevent moles. 

Bertold, my granddaughter, who has a home on her mom's property, has a mother cat who is a Bengal. She is a holy terror and does not allow moles escape her fast action and swift dispatch of small critters. The little things become sacrifices to her skills and intentions, even as she is an excellent cat, playful, loving, and extremely active. She had beautiful babies until they had her neutered. She loves attention and will get it one way or another.

She is a perfect company for me being able to pet and brush her all she wants.

This cat is not hers; it is a stock photo of a Bengal

Chris, I look forward to following your progress through the season. You have a green thumb. Courgette, I like the sound of it!

@ Daniel -  guess it cuts its babies in half. (Don't you see the white tusks?)

Comment by Daniel W on April 28, 2015 at 11:22am
Chris I think you are right that tree was a rowan.

Bertold that plant doesnt look to me like a seal.
Not even a walrus or otter. What's with the Solomon part?
Comment by Bertold Brautigan on April 28, 2015 at 10:54am

Not sure which is the anemone - there's a bleeding heart, a cosmos and a trillium. (I'll send you one!)

Comment by Plinius on April 28, 2015 at 10:51am

Your garden, Berthold? I'm jealous! I want that anemone...

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on April 28, 2015 at 10:43am

Solomon's seal, one of my favorite plants.

I gave-up on eating dandelions because of the bitterness, but I'll try some again, with more salt.
