The lilacs are beginning to bloom
also the flowering crabs.
Maybe next week, we'll have some blooming irises.
The water level in Turtle Creek has dropped (the high water mark is the green line on the peninsula), but it's still very high (it's still at least 15' above the normal level). Turtle Creek flows into the James River, which flows into the Missouri, which joins the Mississippi, along with every swollen creek and river in the entire Midwest. I am not surprised that they're readying for flooding down south. I put on my lawn-mowing shoes and braved the mosquitoes and wet grass to get that last shot for you this morning...
...unfortunately, I forgot to put on my lawn-mowing pants.
