North Carolina in bloom

We are still getting used to a very early spring in NC. Things are blooming everywhere, inside and out. Delightful! I took a walk around the house and yard snapping pictures of the beauty.

Rosemary

Even the poinsettias from Christmas are blooming...and apparently setting seed.

Just in time for Valentine's Day we have amaryllis.

With three more sets of blooms still to come!

The (ugh) china berry trees are in full berry.

The Tramp has been cleaning up and cutting stuff up for the woodpile.

Our fire pit. It's piling up since open burning is banned at the moment.

The bird feeders are very busy most days.

The camellia bush next door is in bloom.

And my neighbor cut some blossoms for my window sill. :-)

Daffodils are everywhere!

All sorts of other bulby things are coming up too.

And I discovered we have a camellia too! Just two flowers at the moment though.

I don't know what this is but it's right outside my window. Very pretty.

I think we have irises coming up everywhere too.


Nice.

Can you believe this weather? AND I just heard a "slight" possibility of a teeny tiny flurry over the weekend. Counting the seconds until the Mid-AQF!!! We are leaving Friday around 12:30. Can't wait can't wait can't wait!!!
