I think we can haz spring now

We just planted out stuff into hanging baskets and plant pots on the deck.

Everything else is starting to hit full bloom. In my own garden, lily of the valley shoots are taking over the flowerbed like a little green army of spears, I have lilac buds coming up, and I can see that I will be having peonies this summer. There are daffodils in the garden now, and hyacinth. Elsewhere around town, the cherry trees (see icon pic) are in full glory and the magnolia tree which we pass every time we drive to town is a billowing white extravaganza of flowers.

The temperatures hit the sixties today, with lovely sunshine all day. All right, so it's still cold at night - but we can, I think, officially and finally haz spring now, kthx.

Oh, and right now...? One of those deer which were fawns last year is right now lying curled up right outside my office door, drowsing in the gathering twilight.

Life is good.
