Everything is Blooming... Almost

April 5, 2012...

Last week, I shared what was blooming in my backyard and many of you (even though you didn't comment) seemed to like peeking into my world. So I decided to show you more of what is happening here in NE PA.

Remember the Flowering Pear tree.

Now the Plum tree has sprung.

And the peach tree.

The garden is starting to sprout. I weeded this week.

The strawberries are vining. I can't wait to June. YUM

He gets out now and then. We have to keep a watch on this guy. LOL

The Rhubarb is growing like mad. Rhubarb custard pie is favorite.

Here is the recipe. Maybe you can use it for your holiday dinner. Yummy.

1 cup sugar, 1 cup milk, 2 Tablespoon flour, 2 egg yolks < Mix well

Add 2 cups Rhurbard. (You can use blueberries but really give rhurbarb a try)

Beat 2 egg whites until they peak. Then fold them into mixture, gently!

Pour filling into an unbaked pie shell> 1 10' deep dish.

Bake for 10 minutes at 400 and then turn heat down to 375. In about 45 minutes, insert a knife into center. When it pulls clean, the pie is done. Enjoy!

Flowers are popping everywhere. Little ones first.

I hope you enjoyed seeing what is going on in my back yard. Thanks for stopping by and remember His Witness To Evil is on sale this weekend for .99 at Amazon and B&N. I hope you enjoy!

  1. Bleedng hearts are in full bloom, some hostas are up, others just poking through, dianthus is way up with a few flowers and the lilacs are budding here in Bridgewater, NJ!
    Thank you for naming those flowering trees...we can never tell them apart!
    Hugs!!! And best wishes for a happy Easter.

  2. Sounds like NJ is a little ahead of us. I love spring for all it color. My lilacs are leafed but flowers are still a few weeks away.

    This certainly is going to be a glorious Easter. Enjoy, Irene. hugs back to you.
