Warm March Day

The temperature rose to
82 F degrees this afternoon.

I put raisons out for the Robins.

This pair is getting ready to nest.

The tulips in the fig garden are opening.

The Spice Bushes are budding.

Clumps of Daffodils are in bloom

and the peonies are coming up.

I saw a Mourning Cloak butterfly
and an Orange Sulphur.

I dreamed the Baltimore Orioles
returned early o I bought a new feeder for them.

With this quick warm up the
Orioles could come any day!

We took the kites out for an afternoon fly.

This girl and her kite were so pleased
to be in the wind.

The four kites flew wonderfully together.

I bought up the field guides.


My nightstand has gardening books
to review.
I think I will do some planting!

Dear Sherry,

Yikes, that is hot, that would be summer temperatures here.

Your garden is pretty. I love the tulips. Are they a dwarf variety?
The birds are building their nests.....I saw a blackbird and blue tit yesterday with beaks full of moss. So sweet.

Butterflies......you have company once again :)

I saw a peacock butterfly yesterday.

Enjoy the warmth of the sun :)

What a nice dream you had, of the orioles. It must have a symbolic meaning for you.
Spring is such a wonderful season and I'm glad you are sharing it with us.
We are still so far behind.

Sherry, you certainly are having an early spring! I took some photos today of what I could find in the garden, and it is not nearly so far along as yours.
I love the first robin capture - the way you can see all the details in his feathers!!
