It's not a race to the finish line in the garden, but I love seeing the early spring plants emerging and reaching for sunshine and soil nutrients. These early plants usually get a lot of photo time since they aren't competing with a garden that is blooming and booming in mid-June to early November. In addition to my reliable rhubarb, the asparagus and raspberries are lining up to start the season off with a bang.

In addition to the perennials above, many of my herbs did not get the pruning they deserved in the fall. I spend most of Easter Sunday trimming up basil, thyme, sage, rosemary and lavender. I think sage has so much character, even when it's long in the tooth.

I love the asparagus buds they remind me of the ones we had when I was a child
