    Beautiful! Great shots. Where are these growing?

    Do you remember the Chiffon commercials, “Don’t fool with Mother Nature”? Well, this year, I think Mother Nature has fooled Mother Nature. The mild weather has lots of plants budding or pushing through the ground early. I’ve noticed nubs on our forsythia bushes. And as I walk, I can see hints of plants emerging in flower beds.

    Marti, the tulips are in Bill’s and my flower planter. I’m glad you enjoy the photos.

    Clara, I wonder if this is going to be an odd year where Mother Nature doesn’t revert to winter before true spring. This has been such an odd year. I like the mild weather, but psychologically, I think my brain is going to need some adjustment since we didn’t really have (so far) four seasons this year. I can only imagine what the insect population is going to be like.
