Happy May Day!
I've neglected the ol' blog recently—but for good reason. I've been working like a mad woman outside. Once all the snow and ice were gone, the extent of the damage from the icestorm was clear. Two solid weeks of cutting up limbs, making piles, and burning later, I was finally ready for spring already. And then we got that glorious weekend of 80 degree weather. It pushed everything into fast-forward mode. Now just look at it around here! Sigh. Sedums are bushy and big, ferns are unfurling and dwarfing the daffodils. And I added 4 lilacs. My favorite.
So I thought it would be appropriate to mark the first of May with some celebratory photos of cold-country spring.
