Down by an Old Homestead

Except for a flock of daffodils and narcissus, it's hard to imagine
 that anyone ever lived here. But despite a broken house
and broken trees, the flowers just keep on keeping on! 

Thanks to guest photographer Doug Gresham.

Buds Against a Blustery Blue Sky

Many of our Japanese Magnolia began blooming during a warm spell 
a few weeks ago. Well, those are dead now, succumbing to February's
 inevitable quick freezes. These are just budding out and survived
 more than seven inches of rain earlier this week, two blustery days
 and now another frost. But at least the skies are blue again!
