Just a few springtime things around the house in the southwest corner of Connecticut.
I thought I would be too late for daffodils, but some clumps are still in late bloom.
I decided to participate in part in No Mow May to help the pollinators, so I had the front yard (visible to the street) mowed but will leave the back alone until June.
Last year I had a Kwanzan cherry tree planted. I am delighted to see good strong bloom this spring.
A tree was cut down before I bought this house. The decay is beautiful.
A couple of bushes are putting out strong new shoots.
Skunk cabbage is plentiful down low near the stream behind my house.
And a chipping sparrow paused in the open to give me practice photographing New England birds. Many birds in Florida are much bigger and slower. I will need practice up here with the LBJs (little brown jobs).
