Daffodils are pushing up, tall and green and just beginning to show their blossom color. Peony shoots of bright red peek out of the ground, as if they're tempting the deer to snack on them. But today, there was a ten minute hail storm, so noisy the dogs were disturbed, leaving a coating of white on the ground and clinging to the skylights. One thing I know, spring will be here soon. The bird symphony and the evening frog chorus are heralds.
