The first robins showed up today. They'll be here a couple of months and then go on to wherever they go. While raking up the peach leaves and stones (we have peach curl), I made the happy discovery of a perfect row of volunteer poppies from last year's poppies.
The hummingbirds are actively working the lavendar and my neighbor's bushes have the pink flowers that spur their mating flights.
Oh, and the pansies are here just because they are so lovely this year.
