The hyacinths aren't very robust but they are multiplying.
I've been weeding a bit around the sempervivium:
I think I'm going to try something with the whiskey barrel and sempervivium down in the lower flower bed this year.
Fritillaria bulb that I planted last fall starting to skyrocket:
Cannot WAIT to see this thing bloom. I also put in many allium blubs that are starting to come up as well.
In terms of wild foraging, I checked out my secret cache of ramps down by the brook:
Oooooo eeeee, once these are nice and big, then I'll head up the mountain to pick from the sea of ramps.
Yuck, right? I've never caught rhubarb this early in the season before- just coming out of the ground. The leaves look like brains... popping out of red pods... I don't know. But this patch/spot of rhubarb has been on the property since my great grandmother was alive. I love the fact that it's still around (and didn't get covered up my boulders when the house foundation was being put it).
