Today was cooler but still very pleasant shirtsleeve weather. Walking through the garden, the daffodils and hyacinth are doing well — a daffodil is below, all the photos are on the web site. The garden seems to be awakening more rapidly than in years past — many of the roses have broken bud and are forming tiny new leaves. The lilac has awakened from its winter's sleep and is opening up clusters of new leaves. Other bulbs are now beginning to stick their heads above ground and we should soon have many more flowers.
