My favorite things: Rhubarb and tulips

Tulip 'Monte Carlo' -- double early tulip -- fragrant and wonderful.

Rhubarb crisp for breakfast. (Recipe from Martha Stewart website.)

These are but two of my favorite things!

We recently had a family reunion and my sister Annie made rhubarb crisp. The rhubarb came from her own garden and it was soooo good! The family that enjoyed it so much were the ones from Iowa that grew up eating rhubarb!
