It's my favourite season, hands down. After a long cold winter nothing is better than seeing the buds come out on the bushes. And since I LOVE change, I appreciate that there's always something new and different in spring. Yesterday I thought my daffodils were dead, today I discovered them popping up amongst the strawberries. A week ago my haskaps were dormant, now they're putting out leaves and blooms. Of course, there's still the occasional snowstorm to contend with, but I content myself in the knowledge that it will soon melt and provide water for my garden.
Oh, and did I mention the lack of mosquitoes? It's nice to eat outside without the outside eating you!

|The first asparagus spear! I wonder if we'll have enough this year to pick some for a meal?|
