Things are looking up, weather wise. This past weekend we enjoyed two straight days of partly sunny weather with seasonal temperatures and I was FINALLY able to get some yard work done.
All the winter storms caused a lot of stick fallage (not a word, but I'm using it anyway). The yard looked awful, as per usual in early Spring.

It was a long day, but very worth it.
I haven't unwrapped the house yet from the atrocious black garbage bags of leaves, but I had to check the bushes and flowers to see if they survived the winter. Luckily, they all did, although some were a bit beaten up.
The Iris, my cast-iron flowers, are perfectly fine, of course. And this year, the moles didn't snack on them at all.

We had some rain Sunday night and again last night. Most of the snow is gone, although there are still a couple of stubborn piles outside my office window.
I'll sign off with one of my favorite pictures from the weekend. To me, it looks like China was staring down the snow, trying to will it away. It's right where she likes to sun herself and she's getting as impatient as I have been.
