Signs of Spring

I am SO ready for spring! Warm, balmy days... bouncing goat kids... the soft sunlight... and flowers.



The fruit trees have buds on them. This is the very prolific plum tree.

There is always the worry of a late freeze, and sure enough this past weekend we had ice crystals (not snow, but ice balls!) and a hard freeze. There were buds on the plum and peach trees before the storm and I was worried, but the flowers are open today so the storm must have hit at exactly the perfect time. Now, if it will just stay warm enough, we will have a good fruit harvest this summer, Lord willing.


Irises
The dozer work dislodged a few of the iris bulbs, but most of them are still in place and coming up as usual.
