Turkey Tracks:  April 27, 2016

April 26th Snow!

I need to mow.

Only the cobalt blue squill I have planted in the yard for years now are glorious this year.  So many have spread that now, in early spring in Maine, they are making a real showing.  I just hate to mow them over…

They got a reprieve yesterday as IT SNOWED.  Hard.   All afternoon.  And it stuck to trees and grass, turning everything quite white for a time.

The daffodils and early bulbs, like the squill, have taken quite a beating this year with our up and down weather.

Poor little things yesterday:

They’ve all popped back today, though the wind is cold even as the day has been bright and beautiful.  I love the bracing air of Maine though.

The grass still needs mowing!!
