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

Onions, potatoes, peas, and other "greens" are popping their little heads up. I've been so desparate for fresh greens, I've cooked up two batches of dandelion leaves. Ya gotta add a lot of salt to get rid of their bitterness. I add the old standard olive oil and vinegar.

Still puzzling with names - could the mountain ash be the rowan?

Plinius, I've misted my tomatoes before, and saved them through several frosts.  It's interesting to see them covered with ice, but recover nicely when the ice thaws.

I love the color of those purple leaves on the red maple.

We sometimes have frost in the nights while the fruittrees are blossoming. Most of the time all goes well. When frost is expected they spray the trees, so a protective layer of ice forms around the blossoms. Sounds strange, but it works.

It's warmer - and definitely wetter this year. Another severe storm during the night. Went out to check on bunnies and discovered tree limb broken, and am thankful that the wind didn't whip it around and cause damage to plants or house. And much cooler this morning - will it hurt all the things with blossoms?

I much prefer blackberries to mulberries. It'll be another 2 months before either are ripe. I did get my strawberry patch weeded yesterday. Blooms galore. Again, I envy those of you in warmer climates.

Great pics Daniel.  I debated whether I wanted to drag my 12' ladder from garage to back yard and then climb up on it to pick the mulberries.  Decided "a taste" from branches I could reach was good enough - leaving remainder for the birds. :)

Barbara, I'm glad you had a chance to taste your mulberries.  I love mine.  They are so delicious.
