The day after the big rain the sun came out for just a bit, but it didn't last long.
The Mahonia is blooming and the honey bees took advantage of the warm sun to get out and pollinate. Soon these flowers will turn to grape like berries that the birds just love.This is a wild honeysuckle that smells as sweet as sugar!I've shown these mushrooms before. There are three and they stuck around all winter.
I wonder how long they will last?Maple tree getting ready to leaf out!Hawthorn I believe. (I think because it's got sharp prickers that HURT!)
~Thanks to my friends who let me know it was a Quince tree. I did some research and found there is another one on the property that actually had one fruit on it last year. Alas, the bugs are really enjoying themselves on the mountain!~Forsythia!I missed all these blooms last year and have a few more to go.
I have until April 24 to get them all in before we've been here a year!
