The rhubarb is one of the first vegetable, plant appearing in our garden. This plant is from some friends who gave it to us long, long time ago. 18 years? They lived here in Portland for few years, we became friends, they had kids and they moved back East. When they left Portland, we had our house and they gave us their rhubarb. Three plants. One of them is very strong. The other two, I transferred them last year to this new spot. I think this is a better place already. (Thank you Lisa!)
Is Spring really coming? I know, it always seems too early when the first flowers start to bloom. Seeing in the news all the snow falling in the rest of the country, seems that purple crocuses shouldn’t be flowering just yet.
The rosemary is also starting to bloom, but it is a little hardier.
It is these delicate petals that make me wonder about spring.
Is February Purple Flower Month then? Or maybe (most likely) we like purple so we have only early blooming flowers that are purple. (Probably this last one is truer.) But I guess I wouldn’t mind the first one either…. so Happy Purple Flower Month to you all!
