Saturday Photo: The Grass in Greener

I must get out and take more spring pictures.  The weather was hot and dry, but the last week we've had rain and cool temperatures, which last night dropped below freezing.

The effect on plants has been interesting. Forsythia burst into bloom and lasted far longer than usual.  Grass languished, however, until the rains came.  Now the lawns are lushly green, although the coverage is still spotty.

The cold overnight seems not to have too much damage, thank goodness.  A tulip in front which had leaned over faced with freezing has now straightened up with the arrival of the mid day sun.
