|The first spring arrival I discovered were the blossoms on the North Star cherry. They were already past their prime and starting to fall off.
|The blossoms on the garden's Honeygold dwarf apple tree were just starting to open.
|One of the more colorful early arrivals was a large patch of violets. This gardener may think twice about letting them spread any further.
|This looks like a variety of red leaf lettuce that I'm guessing sprouted from volunteer seeds from last year's crop.
|Did you know that the beautiful purple flower of a chive is also edible? You can already see some flower pods starting to swell in the lower right part of the plant.
|This is a crop of winter rye put in last autumn to overwinter and provide a green manure this spring. This patch looks particularly large because it is neighboring plots that two people are gardening together.
|If I'm not mistaken, this is a strawberry plant.
|Onions or garlic, I'm not sure. But they're definitely planted in a row.
|Rhubarb gets the prize for largest leaf this time of year.
