Spring is definitely here...

Yesterday brought the first goldfinch in breeding plumage (or at least the beginning of breeding plumage) to one of the feeders.  The dogwood is in full bloom, the spirea is budding, and the violets are out.  Of course, so are the dandelions.  Did anyone else ever notice that the goldfinches and the dandelions match?

While the green beans are putting out new leaves to replace those munched on by Mittsy, the Bambis in the back yard have developed a fondness for daylilies.  Nature, green in tooth and claw, to mangle Tennyson.
