Things have been moving quite slowly in my garden so far. Plants are suffering because we have had virtually no rainfall whatsoever this winter. The last precipitation I can remember was at the end of January when we had a snow flurry for about 5 minutes. Since then, nothing, zip, zilch. Absolutamente nada. So, I've had to crank up the drip irrigation system quite early this year. Of course, it has sprung two leaks, but that's to be expected.
Right now, I'm in love with my little almond tree, in its third spring.
Can you see the almond trees in the background across the river?
They smell just like honey, and I was attacked by ants while taking these shots.
After having the new walkway put in this year,
these are the only crocuses that came up.
The first daffodils, tucked under a Scotch broom.
Borage, and the calleryana pear just about to burst into bloom.
Looks like we'll have new neighbors soon, so we've been scrambling to work on our privacy around the house.
Yes, you can still get cheap labor, albeit an 11-year-old.
Never doubt the power of homemade brownies!

Happy almost spring!
