It seemed like Spring would never arrive this year. It was cold and rainy for too long for those of us who like the cool Spring breezes. But it finally came and in no time everything seemed to be catching up…..and it seems like everything is bursting into full bloom. First it was the daffodils and tulips to pop up to convince us that Spring really was coming. Then the flowering trees, next the lilacs and the iris and peonies, and now the mock orange bush is showing its colors and the Korean dogwood is ablaze with blooms. Many of the perennials are starting to mature and come into bloom as well as the gorgeous red poppies that are so graceful as they sway in the breeze.
3 cups fresh rhubarb, diced
