Moving Along

Since the temperature continues to hit a high between 55 and 60 degrees everyday, the plants have decided that even though the calender says February, they are going to get growing and do their thing! Pictured above, a beautiful clump of "Tete-a-tete" daffodils in the mudroom bed.
The crab apple, that just two weeks ago, had brown, dormant buds, has literally sprung to life this week. It is now covered in blood red shoots.
Another pretty clump of miniature daffodils,  "Segovia" up on the bank. It has reliably returned year after year.
Also abiding the early wake-up call, the wild iris. While still months away from blooming, their green , blade shaped leaves are growing like crazy. The open meadows are covered with their lush clumps.
