Spring is near

Eventhough it is still beastly cold in the mornings, the days are getting longer and there are signs that Spring is on her way. The first blossoms are out. The top one is a pink prunus street tree, the one underneath is next doors almond tree.

Buds are forming on our apricot tree. I pruned it too severely year before last and we had almost no fruit last summer. This year is looking better.

And the chickweed is growing so fast you can almost see it grow. Apparently you can eat this stuff as a spring green. Our garden becomes overrun with it every year.

Some plants are suffering from the frosts we had last week but I'm not going to cut back for another few weeks until all danger of frost has passed. The blackened leaves protect those living underneath.
