Winter Recedes…

It’s April 3rd, Good Friday, and it’s 67º outside my window. Spring has arrived and winter is slowly receding from New England. It has left it’s mark. Below, a previously globe-shaped bush has flattened under the weight of the snow…DSC_0207The poor young Honeycrisp apple tree took a beating…

And I neglected to cut back the hibiscus…but the snow took care of that for me.

But there are happy signs, too. The forsythia bush is budding…

And the tulips are poking through…
