We can't decide if the small patch of dirt next to our house - which sprouts three birch trees, a hedge and a ton of weeds - is a garden or a yard... hence we call it "the yarden".

Nice photo Hans.   I'm surprised you have flowers already.  I thought it was still too cold in Norway for flowers.  I just did a quick search for the weather in Olso today, and it is 34 F at 8:24 p.m. your time.  

Spring in Miami means the pineapple plants are beginning to produce fruit.  I counted 15 small pineaples growing in our yard today.  Here is one of them, and it's just under 5" tall.  The mango trees are blooming, and we'll have fruit in the summer.

You are far ahead of us Hans! Snow today and the ground is still frozen around roots, it's still winter for us even though the planet says it's spring.

Beautiful crocus, Hans. It's always nice to see crocus popping up as a sign that winter is about over. We've had a warm spell in the Pacific Northwest, and suddenly cherry trees are in full bloom. I'm hoping we don't suddenly get a cold spell and freeze the buds popping out all over.
