SNOW ON THE LAWNSWINGS

This is the scene in a friend's back yard. The stream is full of icy water, the ground is covered with snow. Isn't spring here? Maybe not.
Last week we sat on the lawn swings in the sun. Yesterday we sat in the lawn swings. Okay, we wore coats but we sat there. Not today.
But you can't fool the Mother Nature. She knows the date. Spring was officially five days ago. And in another few days I will go forth and harvest the first bounties of spring. I will peel and salt the first tender morsels. I will share with any grandchild that comes. Mmm. Rhubarb! Springs first gift.

You have those sweet glimmers of green. No such luck here. Everything is very late.

Oh, my goodness, I can't believe that shot of the snow on the gazebo. It looks like a winter wonderland. What are you going to make with the rhubarb, pie? (I, unlike Hildy, LOVE warm, mushy fruit!)
