jumping the gun
okay, is it weird that i have been almost giddy for two days since i saw the magnolia buds swelling? although we are probably a week or two from the first blossoms, my friend chel gave me a good sized cutting from her tree so i could force some early blossoms indoors. on a similar note, my son and husband tapped the maple tree in our backyard yesterday, on a whim, and the they already have a gallon of sap in just 24 hours. it’s so funny, that after 7 years of doing STILL, i am still caught off guard every single year at just how quickly things start to change in mid-march.
