Here is a photo taken yesterday of the small bed by the garden gate.  Also one of a clump of daffodils in the shade garden where the squirrels thought they’d look good.


And then some taken today…  the same small bed, the same clump of daffodils.


And here are my cherry trees, soon to bloom… I hope.

These photos are of things on our deck, we’d just purchased a new umbrella for the table yesterday… I don’t think we’ll be using it soon!


My biggest concern was for plants already emerging, the cherry trees, and the birdhouses already occupied.   This one is one that Tina made as a little girl in girl scouts.  The weight of the wet snow pulled down some smaller branches of the River Birch and hit the house, but didn’t knock it off.  If there are eggs in there already, it will probably take more than that to chase the birds away.
