Looking Forward to Sunshine

The west coast winter officially begins with the passing of the longest night.

Now I look forward to sunshine & new growth.   Really it has started already.  The tiny leaves of grape hyacinth poke above the ground in the late fall, but I don’t expect to any blooms until April or May…

In the meantime they look so fresh & green & juicy, it’s just too tempting for the deer to leave alone!   I suppose we all enjoy a holiday treat.  🙂

  1. It’s been almost 40oC here for the last two days and forecast for the next few days is 41oC – so everything here is starting to wilt from the heat.

    Hope you had a fun time at Christmas!
