Whoosh! Since yesterday all the Japanese maples flushed their leaves. I planted my evergreens in urns with some gerbera daisies and snapdragons. There are lots of pesky weeds sprouting that need attention. I’m in heaven just puttering around soaking up the sun.
The extended cold weather we had this year kept the snowflakes from sprouting too early and being frost bitten like usual. It’s a good thing.
Christmas is as happy about spring as we. He has to have a special invitation to come inside.
Plenty of flowers attract plenty of insects. Watch out for those wasps. I’m more tolerant of wasps now that I know they attract the summer tanager.
Here is one that nested high above our deck a couple of summers ago. Actually, he sat near the nest and sang the whole time.
