Temperatures are sliding up into the 60’s—still a frost a night, but we’re getting there.
The star magnolia is in full flower, as are the pasque flowers.
The lilies in the pond are sending up shoots, but have another half foot to go before breaking the surface.
We went out and brought a little order to the garden. Got the canopy back on the patio, and I swept and scrubbed down two of the four chairs: two to go. Jane did the lion’s share, getting the lotus pond back in operation, and transplanting some of our border plants that seem to want to grow on the gravel paths instead of the perfectly good flowerbeds.
