Today was a beautiful day at Big Creek. It was somewhat overcast but warm and pleasant. The Helleborus are amazing and many other plants are sprouting out and showing their blooms. The plums are wide open and the peach is quite pink. It is way too early for the plants to be so far along but there is absolutely nothing a person can do about it. There will still be numerous below freezing temperatures and everything will be bitten.This is how it goes in the late winter and early spring here and one just has to deal with it as best you can.
The chickens are very happy to be out of their pen and are at last free range, at least for the time being.
