Let Spring Win!

Honey bees are hard at work...on the sunny days. Below, gloom hangs over the Eel River Valley.rOaDie is rocking my wrrld...story here.Crab Apple...Wild Lupin...Below, Chard having survived the winter grows lush and green.
Grape Vines are sending out initial shoots...Below, Gravenstein Apple on a sunny day.
Spring embraces me and these hills. Nights are warmer and in spite of the rain and wind bright blossoms are finally winning out over the void of winter.

winter and spring are slugging it out

Rainbow Shining...
Tulips and Pear...
It has been a long week of snow, rain and freezing temps. Sunshine has been minimal and rainfall in excess. I hope spring wins, soon!
