There's nature blooming everywhere at the moment! Trees are budding, the hawthorne have turned a particularly lurid spring green, the grass is lush and just now, up by the tractor shed, I saw the year's first orchid. (I think it was waiting for the rain that started last night; it's been very dry.) A bit early to tell but it looks like an Early Purple. I'll take a photo when I get round to it.
