Stereotypical Signs of Spring

Nothing like a string of 50 degree days. Saw a robin in the yard yesterday.

So, good news, bad news out in the yard. Yes, still a little snowy and sooo oh so muddy. Yes, chives, mint, oregano coming up already. A couple snowdrops blooming cutely.

But looks like, between the cicada damage and the damn bunnies, the Russian quince tree that we planted last spring may be a goner. I guess it's too early to tell. Maybe Russian quinces are used to that sort of treatment, out on the steppes. With the giant wolves and all. Using little saplings to clean their teeth after the kill.
