Yes, you're going to have to listen to me go on about spring again. Really, when it's happening, there isn't much else to talk about, is there? It happens so quickly - arriving quickly, living such a short life, and then disappearing into the full sunlight of summer. So. This day started with sushi rolls, kid-style (I think they did a pretty good job on the rolling, don't you?)
Then Out. Our mission was to find a place to plants some ramps Dan bought, roots and all, at market this week. Though we don't have a good place for them at home, we are hopeful that they might thrive on our friends' land...
While looking for a good spot for the ramps (near beech, birch, or poplar, and in a spot that is somewhat wet), we discovered that the ramps she planted last year were GROWING!!!!! Beyond exciting. Now we knew exactly where to plant the new ramps!
This was the second hike I've taken this week with a cat. I love hiking with a cat. Makes me feel all wise-woman-witchy.
And here is the view from the bottom, back up towards the rocks. There were flowers everywhere we stepped - we were choosing between stepping on cutleaf toothwort, troutlily leaves, and trillium!
We did not step on the trillium.
Is there any better place for children to explore than a creek?

And in case you are finding me somewhat nerdy (what? you hadn't picked up on the nature-geek nature of this blog already??), rest assured that I share this trait with my good friends here. I am in excellent company.
