Truth is, it's been kind of a long, cold, a little bit of a depressing winter around these parts. Besides two real snowstorms, we had that uber cold, like coldest that it's been since I've lived in Oregon cold. I lost quite a few plants in the yard that, as it turns out, I am pretty attached to. It sounds a little odd, but I really think I've been grieving the loss of these plants. My bursting out of it's oak barrel New Zealand flax, pretty much all my succulents except for some real die hards turned to slime, my fatsia japonica has no leaves, several jasmine are gone, a fern or two disappeared and the list goes on.
But spring is definitely here.....seemed like around last week everything just started bursting out.
I LOVE SPRING!
