TAXES DUE ON PATRIOTS DAY.

The tulips and daffodils are coming in about as normal at Cold Spring Shops headquarters.


I forget what the groundhog forecast, but there's indisputable visual evidence of an early spring out back.


Usually the daffodils are pretty much done by the time the bleeding hearts pop.  This area of the back yard is in full sun, with reflectivity off the yellow siding.  First stuff to bloom always appears here.


Moonset.  Those flowering trees must have been the default setting in the landscaping packages that generally accompanied such houses ten years or so ago.  They look pretty good by the dawn's early light in the spring, and I think the leaves go to orange in the fall.

My own forest is more varied.  I hope the people to the west like the view.  Leaves are just coming in now.
