spring is sprunging…er…spranging…er…it was nice out today

It was a very nice day out today. I managed to assess the winter damage, put the grotto to rights, turn compost, ready the container garden on the deck and even uncover the back walk. And even even take some pictures of the feats.

Deck containers are ready for planting.

Daffodils!! The story goes that my maternal grandpop won prizes for his daffodils.


Elder budding


more elder buds. This is the artsy stuff. See the artsy shadow?


Purple crocus!


Witch Hazel needs some help. It was a hard winter.


Feverfew will grow anywhere. Even in macadam.feverfewdriveway

And, of course, my favorite spring friends: dandelion and dock.dandiliondock

Not everything was all that wonderful. Winter was strangely harsh this year. Not a ton of snow (except in March) but a lot of frigid temps that killed off or distressed some of my plants and unfortunately, more than a few animals.

Upstream doesn’t look so bad, but…


Downsteram was a mess.


And then I found a dead fox that made me very sad.dead fox

And the catbird skull which now lives in my office.


Winter’s leftovers will be dealt with next weekend.
