Well our daffodills finally bloomed this week and we have yellow on our forsythia..the apple and maple trees have buds on them and a few smaller fruit trees have little bitty buds.. The lilacs are leafing..slightly..and you can see what ones are going to flower. the poppies and iris are up about 8 or 9 inches..of course no flowers. The cr phlox has color but no flowers..yet.

A lot of new birds are around this year..but they aren't all back yet. it is getting greener though and we might remain in or near the lower 60's this week..gotta love that ! Still have standing water everywhere..and mud galore..but that is Michigan in a damp spring....rather have that than drought like we had for a couple of years.
