Spring is a bit rusty this year

Well, temperatures have finally cracked double digits in the Celsius scale, and I can't say I'm unhappy about it. The wind has shifted, and although the snow is still on the mountains, and there is fresh cover on the tops, for the most part things are gradually getting warmer. The local Deer are getting bolder, fearlessly attacking the tulips in our front yard. It's spooky to see them so close to the house. I was surprised that Dog didn't kick up a fuss and scare them off, but no, he just lay in the front room and snored. Idle mutt.

Buds are breaking, there is a mist of new green on the Birch, the Cherry blossom is now in full flower, as are a number of other ornamentals, and next door have been trimming the hedge with some heavy duty looking kit.

Today is brilliantly sunny and Wife and I are having a relatively lazy day, although I've been hitting the keyboard since six am, and she's researching for the local library. It's a nice day.
