The Rain Soaked Garden
That being said, I love to walk around the garden right after a storm and seeing everything covered in raindrops. Sometimes a fog rolls through and casts a faint glow over everything. It also makes some interesting photography.
I'm growing this speckled romaine lettuce for the first time. Hopefully it tastes as wonderful as it looks.
The hyacinths are in bloom right now. They smell incredible and are among my favorite spring flowers.
The claytonia is lasting longer than I'd expected. They seem to be thriving under the cooler than normal conditions.
Finally, my lone rhubarb plant is doing well. I'd planted the rather pathetic-looking crown last spring and am hoping to harvest a few stems this year. The first ones to emerge seem fat enough but aren't long at all. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this will change as the plant grows. Otherwise, we'll have to wait another year.
