Signs of life around the yard

This is something I found growing.  I'm not sure what it is, but it resembles rhubarb.  Its in a spot I wanted to plant rhubarb, but I don't remember planting it there.
Swiss chard still going strong in our warm November weather.
Eggs are getting bigger and more frequent.
Sage is still looking good.
Oregano is as well.
Peach tree is putting on new growth.
 Apple tree is still holding onto some leaves.

This has been my Sunday Stroll.  Check out who else is strolling at The Quiet Country House.

It does look like a pretty day in your area! I love to see the trees setting out their new buds! There is something so hopeful about that!

You're right: the plant in the first photo looks suspiciously like rhubarb. Maybe you planted it when you weren't paying attention. lol!

Maybe you planted rhubarb in your sleep?! LOL! Or perhaps some swiss chard seed made it's way to that area?

Enjoyed the stroll. :)

Thanks Aisling, the new buds are so wonderful.

Kitsap, I'm wondering if I planted it and forgot. I even went back through the blog to see if I wrote about it. Oh well, we'll see next year.

The stalks look like rhubarb. I withhold judgment without actually seeing it :-)

This is the first year I planted a lot of herbs in my garden in New England. Everything else has gone to sleep for the winter, but the herbs don't seem to have gotten that memo.

Karen Anne, the weather has been so mild this year, that it seems everything is still going. I'm really hoping that it is rhubarb, that would be a wonderful surprise.
