Spring, at last
Fat lilac buds wait for warmer weather.
Winter lingers, overstaying its welcome. Today, for the first time this year, the temps reached into the 60s. It feels like Spring, at least in the front and side yards. On the north side of my house, there's still a lot of snow on the ground.
This bed won't get midday sun until the middle of May. For some reason, the snow around this astilbe melted faster than the surrounding snow. To the right of this photo, the snow is 14 inches deep. To the left, six inches.
