The lilacs are thinking of blooming
And some very special bulbs I worked hard to save have survived. I almost cried from joy.
The garlic is emerging.
A small flat of lettuce has been seeded (and barricaded from marauding squirrels, rabbits, and gophers)
Alas, we’re continuing to clean up the massive tree mess
And that tree is, sadly, trying desperately to send vast amounts of water up to the shoots that are no longer there. It’s all weeping out where we girdled it. It makes me sad. 😦
But the birds are loving the brush piles around the yard. Too bad we can’t keep them.
