A productive evening, sunny and mild with temperatures in the high 60s. It was astonishing how much has changed since the weekend. A couple of camellia flowers are out among the buds desiccated by the harsh winter, trillium are blooming in the woods, tulips are almost in bloom in the lavender garden, the early daffodils are finished, the late ones are in bud, native spring ephemerals Mertensia virginica and trillium are flowering in the woods beneath the Cersis canadensis blossoms and the Dicentra spectabilis are in full bloom. I cut back the last of the grasses and managed to finish repainting the garden chairs before a huge storm cloud darkened the sky and heavy rain, thunder and 50 mile an hour winds forced me inside. At least I don't have to water the pots.
