It's amazing to me how quickly our landscape is turning from winter bare to spring profusion! This is the view from the front of the Arboretum across the road to a small patch of trees and shrubs -- today covered in lavender and purple wisteria. The vines have formed a sea of low bushes, while the more adventuresome vines have begun taking over the trees to form purple draperies. If I squint my eyes, all I see is a curtain of purple and chartruse ....
It's raining as I am writing this. The temps are a bit cooler, and thankfully, C and I have been able to 'capture' Spot and Target for their appointment with the vet -- the last of the litter to be spayed.
The school closes at noon today for the Easter holiday. After a flurry of activity, the plant sale next week and other obligations each weekend until June, I think we're planning a quiet, restive weekend ... it'll be a welcome change!
Have a great day!
