The beauty of living in a cold hollow. Our yard remains covered with snow plus many broken branches and pine needles from our winter winds. Only a few glimpses of the ground near the house and in sunny places. Spring will be a while but birds have returned and can be heard twittering away and hawks are soaring and calling. We can leave the spring cleaning for a bit longer.
Ah - misspoke. Too nice a day so out to cut off the top half of neighbor’s pine that fell across our yard and raked the snow to pick up the larger twigs and branches.
I was surprised at how much snow was around when I visited Peter and Gail last weekend. We are definitely into bare ground and blooming daffodils. I was out another 3 hours today to finish things off.
I'm often amazed at how taxing it is to work in my tiny 10' x 10' yard / patio. Maintaining your lush yard must be a major undertaking! p.s. I can still send you that bottle of Tecnu we bought last year at nationals... :-P
I Tecnu'ed both yesterday and today, just to be on the safe side, but I don't think I needed it.
Daffodils blooming already! Even with our 70+ degree day last Friday we atill only have shoots, no blooms.
I just saw our first daffodils here on Friday morning. Since then I've seen many more, but they still are more that haven't bloomed than have.
The redbuds & pear trees are starting to flower, which is lovely!
Daffodils!! 'Bent took this photo in the forest behind our house during his bike commute to work this morning. (On studded tires.)
There might be some daffodils under that snow and ice. Maybe they'll appear by July.
