Well, Happy Freezing Spring!

Fingers Crossed That This is Tarragon!
Getting Primped for Its Closeup!
Lady's Mantle!
Salad Burnet!  A Little More Worn This Season!
The Ever Present, Chives, the Early Risers!
The Horehound is Back!  Yay!
Well, you wouldn't know that it was spring here.  OK, we do have a blue sky and sun.  Those two things are in short supply if it were still winter.  BUT and this is a big one!  IT IS FREEZING!  Well, maybe not 32 degrees.  We are a bit warmer than that.  We are supposed to be in the low 50's by now.  Not going to happen for awhile.  The wind is strong and any thoughts I have about going out and cleaning up make me shiver!  We were inspired by Ina Garten's omelet recipe yesterday to find out if the tarragon was coming back.  That first photo has a tarragon tag where the sprouts are, but as you all know, it may not be exactly there.  The lady's mantle is very hardy.  So that was no surprise.  Also the salad burnet and chives are perennial favorites.  I don't always get horehound through the winter.  So was excited to see it.  Haven't taken all of the covers off and will wait until the last minute this year to see about the lemon verbena.  I'm keeping my thoughts positive.  Well, want to get this posted.  Errand day with a Panera lunch.  Talk to you later.

I don't know Bernideen! It seems like we are going to be cool/cold until after Easter and then we are going to be in the 60's! Fickle weather. Thanks for stopping. xo

Hi there! Looks like your herbs are getting ready for warmer weather. I know you are ready! My chives never really died down all winter and I've had them for years, they're good in omelets! You'll be out gardening before you know it,
Dorothy and Ms.Wilma
