Thursday and Friday were in the 60s, and we had half an inch of snow today. Yes, it is March. Ellie and I did some nature observations in the front yard yesterday, and here are some of the things we found.
The tree is our new Enkianthus tree -- the buggy-looking things are actually last year's flower caps (not the technical term). Cross your fingers that it thrives! The soil around it is like concrete, so I'm concerned. The flowers are bulbs that Ellie and Clark planted in the fall. How great to see them peeking their sweet leaves up above the mulch.
