Spring !!

Monday, 4 February
(one of those mathematical dates: 04 x 02 = 08)

In case you're a resident of somewhere like Bickleton and you think winter is never going to end, there's proof to the contrary right outside my front door. The tulips and daffodils are already several inches above ground and:


lily of the valley is starting to bloom,







daphne is just about to open up and release its glorious fragrance,





and witch hazel is in full bloom.

Apparently you and the groundhog need to have a little chat...

If the groundhog would just get out there with her digital camera, she could see that spring is going to happen no matter what she predicts. Today was perfect weather for spring racing at Mason Lake: 38 degrees and rain. Does it get any better? :)

I'm jealous! We got about five more inches of wet nasty snow last night...

One of our trees is starting to bud though. The Palouse is a strange area.
