Gone, but Not Forgotten

Look! Winter is almost gone. Not completely. . . . we have this little patch of snow left:

I went for a walk around my neighborhood, looking for a hint of green, and I found this:

. . . a little patch of chives, growing right next to my house! Nothing else green in the neighborhood, but this--ready to ward off the rabbits once tulip bulbs begin to make their appearance alongside them.

Isn't it amazing how something as simple as a patch of grass is a happy thing? :) Nice contrast of shots!

It's nice to see some green! I think your snow found it's way here.. You can take it back please :)..

Gotta love chives!

Rabbits don't like chives? Since we don't have tulips, I don't mind the bunny eating the lawn. :)

Yay! I'll bet that brown sure looks good over the white, or rather, dirty snow!

And chives are wonderful in cucumber sandwiches! Yum! I usually host a tea in the Spring with friends and co-workers and make mountains of cucumber sandwiches (which reminds me, I better put it on the schedule).

How yucky that you still have snow patches . . .
