I was in Bain Park again in Trenton and took the picture of the red wing blackbird.
This morning I noticed that my little mountain ash tree that I planted last year has many buds on its branches.
I will post a picture once those buds become blossoms.
I noticed recently that I had one tulip bud on an old plant that I thought was sterile. I was looking forward to it opening. I went out and upon my return, I noticed that the bud had been picked (!). I saw it lying half under the house skirt. I guess a mouse thought it might make a nice meal.
I brought it inside and put it in water and now I will get my solo tulip flower regardless of the mouse that nipped it before its time.
