tiny leaves on the ashes
tender shiny aspen leaves
first buds on the crabapple
It's hard to get a deciduous tree established on the high plains. Two years ago, I saw a small crabapple labelled with the variety "David". I bought it in honor of my beloved. I have hand-carried water to this tree for two years. This Spring it rewarded us with its first buds. And ... (wait for it)...it's not a "David", which is a white variety! The joke's on me! But hey, anything that blooms is most welcome here!
The daffodils are almost done.
This is about the last clump still blooming.
In the first daffodil photo, did you spy who was crouching amongst the blooms?
Here he is -
the bunnies don't even hop away from us.
We are expecting 2" of snow tonight, 8" tomorrow and a high of 33 degrees Monday. Hunker down, little bunny. Goodbye, flowers. Don't break, trees. And most of all, stay safe dear horses.
Tune in next post for "After...".
