Spring 2015

For the past 8 springs, this has been "opening weekend." We've had so many heavy snowfalls this year that even at work, people didn't call to complain; they were so overwhelmed they just didn't bother.

I never thought the daffodils would break ground. But it rained today, melting some of the snow, and moving some maple leaves away:

Porch is painted, lattice is replaced, lawn is raked (sunday after thanksgiving, oops) and all is right with the world.
