Slow Progress

Slow Progress

After several cool days and freezing nights, there’s not been a lot of action, save for the destruction the deer have wrought.

  • Upper Left:  a lone daffodil has erupted.
  • Upper Right:  the rhubarb looks like a real plant, but the stems are only a few inches long.  I’m usually picking it by this time.  This is one thing I remember from past years because Brian’s birthday was last week, and he used to love strawberry-rhubarb coffeecake for his birthday.
  • Lower Right:  my front tulips were loaded with fat buds waiting for some warm temps, but several of them were decapitated by the deer.
  • Lower Left:  the back tulips are now 6-8″ tall, but no buds yet.  I’m sure the deer are waiting anxiously.
