Joan, I'm beginning to think I'll never see spring. It's coming down again.
Daniel, l wonder if it's the same as what grows here. It gets over four feet tall. A nice, large bloom. Rather a dull color but it is a wonderful home for many critters. Butterflies and bees being the top two. It's hardy and will grow almost any place. Except heavy shade.

Good morning world! A nice foggy morning, just right for April. OH! this is going to be an interesting growing year! 

All the little snow piles disappeared, the hellebores buds have grown to be about the size of a quarter, the day lilies show a tiny bit of growth. Everything seems to be ready to explode into the first green of the year.

The snowpack is 66% of normal and needed for late summer. I suppose the dams between here and you, Daniel, will fill all their reservoirs.  

Kathy, that is a mighty drop. Hope you have help shoveling.  

Randy, I assume you found all the information you need about owl pellets. Intrigued, I went on a hunt and found this

All about owl pellets

I didn't know that! Fun to learn something each day.

I found some seeds fir Joe pye weed on line. I might buy some. It's considered excellent forage for honeybees.

Randall, do you grow any Joe pye weed in your backyard habitat? I see it along the roads and fields every place but don't have any here.
It's supposed to be the best thing for butterflies. I'm going to transplant some this year. If it ever warms up.

Beautiful, Daniel. Mine had set blooms then we had
13''of snow dropped on them so I won't be seeing them for awhile.

Never mind. I googled owl pellets and learned a lot!

By coincidence, PBS had owls featured on it's weekly Nature show last night! So very interesting. I learned a lot. I only wish they would have explained owl pellets. I recently learned they aren't "poop", but regurgitated. True?

Have fun, Patricia!

Bertold B, I've been wondering about whether my neighbors small children will be a temptation for the owls.  But they have 7, so I'm not sure they will miss any. 

Randy, It's similar.  I'm just going to do it for WA state.  If you get an owl box, maybe they will use it!

Signs of Spring.  A bit earlier than I expected.  There could still be a big freeze.

I've got owls nearby. I can often hear them at night. They make me a little nervous though because they look at small dogs and think What foods these morsels be.
