spring comes to the newly-shadeless yard...

my dear shade tree was
on the right edge of the
garage wall there.
I'm sure the pines (on
the right going out of
this shot) will give me
enough very-late-afternoon
shade for me to get by,
but even this past weekend
I got mighty crabby having
to toil the soil in the f%$# sunshine....!

This bunch of yummy hellebore, daffs, forget-me-nots,
clem. montana, and viburnum will do me just fine, thanks!

Tulips gaping open by... 3.
Hydrangea leaf buds
generally give up
the ghost and
drop off by day 4 or 5.

Pink parrots, day 2...

...and this is the stage I like best...not shyly inhibited,
but not yet a trio of floozies, or -- gasp -- exhibitionists
giving up TMI...
