I guess spring is "just around the corner" as they say. I took this photo yesterday (lying on the ground because I hurt my knee and can't squat -- that's why it's catty-wampus [if you've never heard that term it's probably because you don't live on Ocracoke]).
The tulips are just starting to push through the ground, so it will be a few days before they are gracing my yard. But we are looking forward to temperatures in the high 50s starting today and lasting through the weekend. The only real down side to this time of year is the cedar pollen. I'm not much bothered by it, but there's lots of sneezing in the village right now.
