April 2018 – back home

We have returned from the sunny south.  I was eager to see the garden and to assess the winter damage.  Moles and voles were busy this winter and something nibbled the hens and chicks.  The deer left hoof prints in the dirt and perhaps they were the nibblers. The storms left some tree damage.  Oh yes and we had snow…….

It is supposed to warm up the next few days.. maybe I’ll find a few buds or blossoms to photograph and share.  Despite the late spring, it is nice to be home.
