Spring in Iowa

The ice on the Iowa river is breaking up. I thought I'd share this picture.
I hear, from my mom, the robins are in southern Iowa. I have not seen them myself. For me seeing the robins is a sure sign of spring.
The seeds are in at the grocery store* another sign *.Thunburgia, colimbine and melody spinich seed packets came home with me. It is time to plant the flower seeds in the greenhouse. The spinich will go in the ground as soon as the last frost warning is over. Melody is a really good variety one we plant every year.Nothing better than fresh spinich.
Today we will cut some branches off the trees to force buds.
