This spring Chloe & Annie turn 15; Flynn, 12 and Willie, 8
22 April: the giant hosta popped up last night. April has been mostly cool and budding is slow but today my world turned pale green and rain is on the way. Got the temp plates for the Taos that I bought on March 6th. Not a lot of frog eggs in the pond this spring but loads of newts and very large tadpoles made it through the winter. I have redwing blackbirds around which, I think, is a first.
