24 Hours


 What a difference a day makes .......


 This picture was taken 24 hours ago. It is hard to see the tight little buds.


 Those little buds have burst open. I tried to get a shot of the bees busy at work, but, memory of my last sting kept me back.


These are a few of last years gourds, waiting to be washed and painted. Some of them cured nicely and will made some fine homes for birds, but some shriveled and the skin is too thin. I will break those open and plant the seed for another crop.

I have been outside all day, but the predicted clouds are gathering. Spring showers are coming.

Wasn't it just the perfect day. I hope it went around the world.

Love-love-love the weather. The tulip trees are dropping their blossoms and so I took my students outside to let the tree 'snow' on them. So many giggles.

Wow - that is quite a difference. The trees are doing nothing here, but all the daffodils are in full force. It's awesome.
