They're up!

Spring is a great time to move.  Growth hums out from all directions, and the light changes as the trees green up.   We have witnessed central Iowa come to life in our first two months here.  Now even the cornfields are green - lawns are relishing the cool nights and warm days, perennials are up and flowering, trees provide gentle shade.

We didn't intend to do anything in the landscape in our rental home, but a bare strip along the driveway begged for some veggies.  I planted bean seeds last Sunday - just a week ago.  The soil is thick clay and we didn't have much hope, but then all at once the little army of will-be beans stood proudly in their rows.  Even if it isn't official yet, welcome, summertime!
