Other than the usual morning mist and fog, very little about our weather has been "normal." We have had late snow, colder than normal temperatures and warmer than normal temperatures. Today we are enjoying much warmer than normal temperatures. We might even reach a new high for the date. It feels much more like May than early April.
A walk around the house reveals much improvement in the plant life.
One of a few camellias that got to blossom fully
The hellibores looking much healthier
We have a lot of ducks about the yard.
This one looks at the plants while enjoying his stogie.
Remember it's art if you love it.
Another fully blossoming camellia. Occasionally we have the blossoms all over
This year they are few and far between with most buds dropping before blooming
As I walk around the yard and into the woods this spring, I miss sweet Ellie even more than usual. Spring without her is a little bittersweet.
