The wind tried to blow the garden away today, but luckily it did not succeed! I guess ‘Butterscotch Ruffles’ liked the wind and rain, because it opened this beautiful flower late in the afternoon. The rain was good for the new flower bed, though. See the Garden Craze page for a picture. The house finches visited our front trees several times while I was out this weekend. They happily chattered to each other until they realized that I was watching them, then they fluttered away. I like spring!
