Today was beautiful. It got up into the low 60's. The wind was blowing, but we were able to be out in short sleeves. We did a lot of outside things today. We pulled dead leaves and plants out of the flower beds. We cut back a lot of the briers that were trying to grow. We took out the tomato stakes (which should have been done in the fall). We pruned the fruit trees as well. We had a bunch of things we wanted to get done inside, but it was just too nice outside. We saw our first bluebirds of the season. I think they are nesting in the box I have out. I have daffodils coming up all over the place.
It is amazing at how quickly the plants respond to warmth and rain. Here is my lilac getting ready to send forth leaves.
The Wonderful Neighbor's dog came over for a visit. We really don't mind, but the Neighbor Girl is trying to train him to stay home, so we don't encourage him to stay.
