Spy Garden 3.3.17
I must concede that spring has sprung, which I’m not thrilled about. I really love winter and we definitely got jipped this year…I am still hoping for a deep cold snap (to kill off ticks, squash bugs, etc.!) But of course spring is beautiful and definitely means better (less gray!) pictures to share.
Even scrabble is telling me it’s spring!
Anyone know what this is?
I was thinking spinach (that self-sowed) but I don’t remember seeing spindly seedlings (which spinach usually has). I tasted the leaves and they basically taste like lettuce/spinach. Just looking for confirmation that this plant is edible!
In Spy Garden animal news:
Every Bunny was Kung Fu Fighting
The bunnies (all male), were fighting and being really mean to one another (spring hormones?) so now they are all each in their own compartment. I am wondering 1. Why did we get three bunnies? 2. Isn’t that kind of overkill? 3. How would Bun-Bun look as a pair of one-of-a-kind earmuffs? (he is the meanest and really bit/cut up poor Butkus’ ears).
Puff Puff is the nicest
Gronk I met with his end in an unfortunate tank-cleaning incident a few months ago. Gronk II is his replacement. He seems more sprightly than the first one and is quite a challenge to photograph.
New uniforms for baseball (more signs of spring!)
The first peek of asparagus
Deer at Dawn
We even found a dead baby snake; which is soooo early for snakes to be emerging. The snake appeared to have been run over.
We think it was a baby copperhead.
We later “found” it again; in the driveway:
“Spring beauty” or “Fairy spud”; so named because it has tiny, edible, potato-shaped roots
Lots of homes
T-shirts at Forest School (and spot the rebel not wearing the school uniform t-shirt!)
Check out the power lines in the background…
Apparently, they were separating the lines to prepare for replacing one of the power lines.
And it was quite windy out!!!
Our version of an adrenaline rush! ahaha
