I'm sorry, tea friends, to not be posting, but I have to take a nasty medicine for my infection and it makes my mouth and everything I eat taste disgusting. And it also upsets my stomach - which is worse, the disease or the cure? However, tomorrow is the last day, Hooray!
Okay! I will now say Spring has officially reached the Owego Alps. The bears are out of hibernation, proved by their night-time raid of the neighborhood suet feeders and I have flowers blooming - the tiny blue chiondoxa and one lone, bright daffodil. Down by the river, forsythia are blooming and they have a host of daffodils, tulips and crocus. The willows are definitely yellow and the maples are bursting their buds. So now we can relax and sit back and enjoy! enjoy! enjoy! Then we can work, work, work to clean up and plant and do all those things gardeners are just raring to do.
But wait! We had SNOW last night. Really, enough is enough.
