It's blooming all around the old farmhouse today. The daffodils are opening, one by one. The first bloom opened on a camellia that is covered with buds. The iris are pushing through, and so is the fireweed, which persists no matter how hard I try to eradicate it. The hellebores are in full bloom, and so is the pieris japonica shrub. And that beautiful pink rhododendron still shines in the corner of the patio, like it has for two months.
It's still too wet to start digging in the dirt. But not too wet to run errands. So that was my day.
