The forsythia is really pretty this year. I took some inside today, as it is starting to form leaves, so the blooming will be over this week. I'm going to try rooting some from cuttings.
I like the exotic appearance of the horse chestnut in Spring
These daffodils just bloomed after two years.
There have been some really good sunsets this past week and the hour after the sunset often provides a lot of drama.
Like the horse chestnut, the maples really are interesting before the leaves come out completely. These red maple flowers are beautiful in my opinion.
I have always had a little trouble starting seeds in the house. They seem to dampen off for me, which is discouraging. Maybe it is just too early and I should sow directly in the garden. It would just be nice to get a head start. Here are the beginnings today for zinnias and pumpkins. It seems the season for growing pumpkins is a little short here.
Josey is resting now after folding some fresh Spring-cleaned blankets.
Wishing you a good week.
