Spring Awakening

WITH weather in the 60s, the garden has started to burst into Spring. It's supposed to get colder again - let's hope frost doesn't kill all the new growth. Here are some signs of the new season in our garden:

Trees bursting into bud. This is a sweetgum.

Tulip and daffodils are shooting up. No crocuses yet.

And Alexander's first experience of grass and sand! He was so fascinated by the texture of sand that none of my usual ruses to get him to smile into the camera would work. He could not tear his eyes away from this strange substance. (Grass was apparently not quite so exciting.)
