Maybe you should install some sort of deer fencing. Wink My uncle has to wrap his newly planted saplings with some sort of fence that keeps the deer away so they can't eat them. Should be sufficient for cats as well. cat

Our garden is finally beginning to peek through the ground. The first to sprout are always the ferns. They are just little now, but soon they will grow and then when they unfurl they are so lush Smile

This is also when our rhubarb starts to sprout. I love strawberry-rhubarb pie, so I watch our rhubarb quite closely so that I get the maximum yield from it! Laughing Sometimes I get a second crop, but usually just the one.

We also start to spend more time outside. Rather than just rushing to/from school, we start to wander. Evenings and weekends we spend in our front or back yard. And our kids pick flowers for us Smile (you can see the grass isn't quite with the program yet  Rolling Eyes ).

Very cute little rabbit, Fleur Smile Does your little helper have one standing and one hanging ear? I used to have a rabbit like that when I was a child but he was cream coloured and a „Deutscher Widder“, so a rather big fellow Smile

When she's relaxed, she often puts one ear down.
Could be, that the breeds did get a bit mixed at my uncle's farm Wink
Honestly, sometimes I am not even sure, if it's a bunny: she purrs like a cat and follows me like a dog, especially in the garden.

Thank you dear Trollperle for this very special challenge! Rose It is so much fun to see all the photos and it lifts my spirits seeing the colorful photos of spring flowers and cute animals. Thank you everyone for sharing their photos.
And here I would like to show you also some of my spring photos that were all taken in my garden:

Early spring brings the first sprigs of green in the garden and...growing up in Kentucky the Kentucky Derby--so both come to mind with nature awakening:

Super fantastic, dear Kyhalfpt! I love the flowers and how the green shoots up from the old brown stems - and your bracelet is awesome - one of those where I find something new every time I look at it I love you
