Today I fed the birds. It's sunny and bright, but the feeders are quite active -- lots of grackles and sparrows.

I haven't seen the mourning dove on the nest for several days, although the eggs are still there. Apparently it's been abandoned. :/ But perhaps another dove will start a new batch. There are often several clutches a season in that location, it's very popular.


The blue grape hyacinths are now in full bloom beside the patio.

Many of the tulips have been munched by rabbits.  This is why I'm exploring more unpalatable plants.

Daffodils are blooming around the wellcap.  I don't think many of the ones behind it have survived.

Paperwhite narcissus are blooming enthusiastically in the white garden.  A few white hyacinths are hidden in there.

These daffodils and blue grape hyacinths beside the driveway are surrounding the stump of a witch hazel that got cut off last year.  It's starting to regrow, so I'm hoping it'll come back.

Most are plain yellow, but this one has orange cups.

The asparagus are sprouting in the forest yard.  These are too skinny to pick -- they may be from the ones I planted recently, instead of established plants.

The crabapples in the forest yard are also beginning to bloom.
