sour leaves

Rhubarb leaves are growing! They look all puckery and wrinkled, but I know from last year will quickly become huge, wide-spread leaves. I can hardly wait.
 I'm still playing it safe, keeping them covered with glass cloches and blanket of leaves overnight for fear of frost. Even the little half-sized plant I moved into this patch end of the season last year is sprouting spring foliage.
