They're Out There!

Oh my, Mother Nature has been so busy lately, with our early February more like April weather.  Came home from work to find a newly hatched Monarch butterfly, right out of the chrysalis.  There are a few more in various spots throughout the front garden, all about ready to hatch, and at least half a dozen fat & happy Monarch caterpillars meandering about the milkweed plants.  I saw at least 30 Cedar Waxwings in the tippy top of a nearby tree; they are so handsome & we don't often see them. We're wondering if the Goldfinches will stop by on their way home; usually we are overrun with them about now. Our white azalea bush is already blooming, along with several of the African Iris and some Cosmos in orange & yellow.  I just hope we don't get a surprise frost.  This early spring reminds me of 1998 when DH & I got married on Valentine's Day!

Sorry, no pictures just now but will post some really soon! Hope you are enjoying your February, whatever the weather!
