The clematis flowers are budding, the shrubs by the deck are bursting into leaf, and the Forsythia is in flower.
The crocuses by the workshop were wide open today in the spring sunshine. A beautiful narcissus is in bloom by the bird bath, and all the hyacinths are out along by the path near the gate. The rhubarb is beginning to shoot. The viburnum is continuing its slow progress into leaf and flower. The greenhouse environment is now properly enclosed with a working door and window and is warm and humid is during the day.
