If you don't live in Piedmont North Carolina today, I feel sorry for you. It is 83*, sunny, with low humidity, a very blue sky and high, fluffy clouds. I took this photo about 30 minutes ago, when I drove into my driveway from work. The grape hyacinths have eluded the deer this year, so far. Last year, I had about 30 stems in bloom at one time and the next morning - they were gone. Only the bare stems remained. A gardener friend told me that if they are eaten all the way down to the ground; rabbits did it. If only the blossoms are gone, it was deer.
This weekend, I am going to try and get some more photos for you. Our Bradford pear trees are in bloom, forsythia and daffodils are lush all over town and the red bud trees are blossoming more everyday. I hope you are experiencing some form of spring at your home, even if it is only the slush of melting snow. Happy weekend!
