I ordered 4 blueberry bushes from the conservation district, and received five!
Planted them out behind the marsh near where we put in a bunch of pine trees several years ago (blueberries love acidic soil, and pine needles are acidic. . .)
then fenced them securely against the deer.
DH brought some more pine seedlings home from up north recently,
so I planted those in various spots around the front half of the property.
The chickens are loving the warm weather;
the earthworms have surfaced!
My hyacinth are in bloom in the front flower bed
My forsythia bushes are in full bloom too

U.P. back road with a Superior view
(the road is so little traveled I actually had DH stop the suburban
while I got out and stood in the middle of the road to take this picture!)
After graduation, DS2 took DH and I on a hike.
Still a little snow in some areas of the woods in the upper elevations.
Temperature was about 60 degrees in this spot.
Rose I received with my honorary FFA degree at DD2's chapter banquet on Sunday evening.
