Buds and Branches

Now this is more like it.

Almost!  Almost!   (azalea bud)
So many buds!  A big improvement over two years ago.

Bare branches.  I just love fractalization.

Hmm.  Dead tomato plant branches are not so pretty.

Forsythia hedge!

Slightly blurry lilac buds.  

The red bush whose name I don't know.

Rabbit refectory.  Sorry, we're all out of crocuses.  Maybe next year.
Today Youngest Daughter said to me, "I hate spring!"

I said, "Why?"

She said, "Because you always take photos.  And you make me go outside and look at flowers."

I am such a terrible beast of a mother.

Glad to see it's looking like spring up there!

I just ventured out into the pouring rain to investigate my lilacs, and it looks like we're a few weeks behind you. Your forsythia are beautiful, and I had completely forgotten that I wanted to put in an azalea this year until I saw your photos!

Rabbits. I can't even talk about rabbits right now.

You are a bit ahead of us too, and we're currently drowning, but I'm sure it will just encourage things to bloom later!

This gives me hope...spring is coming!
