Brave irises start to grow despite winter's wrath not being over yet.

A new raised bed put together by my husband for my birthday.  I think 4 tomato plants will grow well here.

Sad little lettuce plants.  They survived last week's ice storm.  With a little spring sunshine, they should rebound.  We'll see!

We have had glorious weather for four days, but it will be rainy, windy and stormy today.  High tomorrow:  low 40s.  Spring is on the way.
