Day three of sun and no snow. Amazing!! It should get to 40F this afternoon. It won't last because we are supposed to get more snow Saturday.
The purples finches have returned and they brought friends.
A murder of crows harried the Trowbridge RedTail. It appeared that the crows were winning.
A couple of buds have opened on the Chinese Witch Hazel in the backyard. This is nearly a month late. The Witch Hazel near the front door shows no signs of blooming and it should. This tree has been a consistent March 1st bloomer.
I'm having friends over for dinner tonight, Choucroute Alsacienne. Not everyone likes sauerkraut so this is for those who do. It isn't something that can be made in small batches so I make lots and invite friends.
