Spring comes in fits and spurts here in the Sierras.... it can be almost 80 one afternoon and then snowing the next.... however, daffodils, fruit trees and other light-sensitive plants bloom either way. You can travel up and down the mountains to find the plants you want to view, even!
Right now, daffodils are in bloom at our Forest City house, but little else... however, around the old camp in Camptonville, lilacs are popping out... and unfortunately, so is scotch broom.
I know this stuff looks beautiful to those of you not from around these parts, but believe me, it is as invasive as kudzu or water hyacinth, and a scourge of the foothills partly for choking out other plants and partly because it is highly combustible, something definitely NOT desirable in the Sierras. It also makes me sneeze and wheeze.
We traditionally do not plant much in our garden until Mother's Day, but DH has been busy getting ready, hauling around donkey manure and tilling. This opens up a food festival for the birds (and the neighbor's semi-feral cats, unfortunately). We have spied as many as two dozen Brewer's Blackbirds at the bird bath in our inner yard at once over the past several evenings....
I hope spring finds you with equally magical sights to add wonder to your days, and that you get to have a fun-filled spring weekend!
