Early May, first touches of growing

I just walked around our land in some very cold (40s F) rain, checking out growing things.  Here's where we are, days after the snow vanished:

Garlic: a whole row has risen, new shoots sticking up greenly in the drizzle.

Apple tree: blossoms budding on branches.

Grass: shady grass seed has sprouted in the lowest lawn, a creation of last fall.

Meanwhile, each compost pile collapsed down about a foot.  It's the interior ice thawing out, at last.

The dirt looks good for digging.  Now for the rain to let up.
