Well, FHFB and I are back from our 9 day road trip through Pennsylvania, Virginia, North Carolina and Maryland! I don't know about you, but I am always anxious to get home, no matter how wonderful a trip has been. We both missed our home, and really missed planning and cooking our own healthy, delicious meals. Driving back to the farmhouse was so wonderful the other evening - the lilac bushes and dogwood trees in our field were all in full bloom, the bluebirds had nested again in our bluebird house, one of our Christmas cactuses had blossomed unexpectedly, the asparagus was up in the garden, the vegetable seedlings were doing well, and our two cats Olive and Finn were milling around the back porch waiting for someone to let them in. Even while we were away, Frog Hollow Farm was busy getting ready for spring!
The Dead Nettle had bloomed in our Wine Garden. Isn't that an awful name for such a pretty little pale pink flower?
The Yellow Corydalis volunteers had blossomed in cracks and crevices throughout the Wine Garden and along the fence.
The early spring bulbs were still showing their colors and mingling in with the other perennials.
