Rhubarb, Sunshine, and a little snow!

April 21, 2018
Happy spring from Telegraph Creek! The horses are shedding, the dogs are tracking mud into our house, the robins are here and the snow is gone! (Whoooohoooo!) Aside from a few patches, our yard is pretty bare! I see green grass poking up in places, it’s pretty amazing! It was a pretty long winter, with -40c temperatures and not a lot of sun; we let the horses out into the pasture yesterday and they of course got a taste of the fresh green grass that was poking up! 🙂 I took a peek out at the garden and noticed the rhubarb is poking up out of the ground! I had totally forgotten about rhubarb… so in a few short weeks we will be feasting on the first Rhubarb pie of the season. The other morning we had woken up to fresh snow on the mountains; it had poured rain all night and was a bit chilly out! We are still having to light the wood stoves to take the chill off inside.
