Daniel, did you build your second hive? I remember how pretty your first hive was but I can't remember to appearance of the second hive. When the wind blew over my Washington Hawthorn a couple of years ago, I have nothing in the garden that attracts bees like it did. I'll have to do something about that this year.

Bertold, a lovelier sight I cannot imagine.

First trillium up. Always a favorite sign of spring!

Joan, I just popped the snails into boiling water, pulled them out of their shells with a pick, and dipped them in salt & peppered butter.

To me, they taste delicious.

Honeybee documentary - watching now and thought I would share.

I have 2 hives.  One cleared itself out last fall - I guess they swarmed,  but might have died off.  The other survived the winter.  They didn't have much honey stored up, so I fed them sugar water through the winter.   Now they are out foraging and flying around on warm days.  Very rewarding.

Spud, how did you prepare the snails? Did they really taste good?

Randy, this weird winter presents some odd weather patterns. Cary sends me photos of the weather patterns and tho they are pretty, they must be miserable if they bring so much snow. Still, just snifters to NE WA state. 

Squirrels gave me the signal this morning that their feeder is empty.

Daniel, you're new gardening post are either breaking my heart or giving me hope. I can't decide which! They are beautiful. So much green. And the blooms on the daffodils and tiny tree,.. Sigh..
I suppose it's hope. The pavers turned out great.

Randy, the cold and snow seem to be staying in our areas. More here than with you l think. And even farther south of me. All the way to Ga.
We can't see the ground from the 15'' that hit us two weeks ago. Temps won't stay up long enough.

It's time for my first planting of peas.  Just need to get outside.

 Randy, I don't have your reason for not getting out there.  My temperatures have been in the 30s at night, and 40s in the day.

 The forecast for the coming week is 10-27 at night, and 33-44 in the day.  That still shouldn't keep me from planting peas.

Comment by Randall Smith on February 28, 2015 at 7:32am

As usual, I'm envious of all of you lucky enough to be able to get a early start to gardening. It's zero with 5-6" of more snow forecast to add to the already white ground. My patience is tested!
