The wild plums are beginning to blossom.
They certainly are a heavenly sight after winter greys.
The feathery petals are soft and pure.
At times, I think flower petals and butterfly wings
must be spun from the same fiber.
We have had an extremely mild and dry winter
which is worrisome in the way of water for summer.
There is little snow-pack in the mountains,
and we have had only a few rains.
The good news is that I began working the garden.
While last year at this time,
the ground was frozen solid.
I just got my potatoes in the ground and
am hoping to get radishes, carrots and beets in soon.
Our last freeze date is about the middle of June,
but I am following a little different advice this year.
You can read some of that in this garden post.
Our daffys aren't quite blooming yet,
but it will only be a matter of days.
I have some pretty ambitious yard and garden plans this year.
We'll see how much of it materializes.
I will keep you posted and hopefully have a mini tour coming soon.
Until next time,
Nimble Fingers and Even Stitches
