I'm off for two days starting just over an hour ago. It's been a long day. I left piles of things for others to get done while I'm not there. I don't expect much to be accomplished in that time. They're going to be too busy with temperatures in the mid 70s and sun in the forecast.
Out back, the red clover in the meadow has burst forth.
The peach tree is still blooming. I got buzzed by a couple of bees this afternoon.
The redbud is about to put on a show.
More periwinkle. The whole backyard is covered in blue flowers.
Out front, the daffodils are looking good. Over the next few years, I will add more each fall, either from purchases or through digging my own from The Wild. One day, I'll rebuild the ugly steps. I'm waiting for a sale on concrete.
In the perennial bed, lilies.
The dark maroon tip of a stargazer has emerged from the leaves.
Green and variegated sedum foliage is holding up fine to both wind and cool nights.
The only brown patch left in the yard is designed to be that way. Compost and leaf mulch will be spread soon over cardboard to create the new fragrant bed.
It's 64 degrees and sunny. The wind has been blowing all day. Tomorrow, 75. I can't wait. I already need a nap.
