Three Signs of Spring


The chives survived the winter, first shoots ready to cut.


This year’s spinach crop is up, also table-ready.

Ice cream

And the first batch of home-made ice cream is in the freezer.

There has to be some reward for eating all that spinach!

Ahoy! First I checked it out with a passing glance. Now I’m enthralled and checking daily:

The Draken Harald Harfagre’s trip to the U.S.

Happy news

I can only hope it’s a lotto win – but I wish for that every week. . .

At least the hoping and guessing has a reasonable time frame.

Duck, Duck, Goose!

Real, real, fake!

Walking the pups along the trail, we occasionally see a pair of wood ducks fly by. The event is unpredictable, so no photo. But this fake goose awaits us every trip.

Goose 1

Look at the center of the pic.

Goose 2

And again. It’s an eye test. . .

Goose 3

There she is in all her fallen-branch glory! I call her Nessie.
