A largely snowless winter and a surprisingly warm February merged into an abundantly colorful March and April. As usual, sugar snap peas were the first crop to be planted, beginning on March 9th.  By the end of the first week of April, the annual spectacular display of the weeping cherry and crabapple trees was past its prime.  But then came our Rosebuds, planted way back in 2010 and finally blossoming fully for the first time this April!  And shortly afterwards, Virginia Bluebells and our Dogwood.
