If you look closely — very closely — you can see 3 buds in this photo.
Of course, as anyone who has lived here for more than 3 days knows, weather in Westport does not proceed linearly.
Enjoy it while it lasts.
Winter will not go down without a fight.
As a kid in Westport in the late 60s – 70s, for me the sign of spring was the small crocus flowers that grew from bulbs dad planted. I guess the bulb planting stuck with me. We’re in California now, and the land around our vineyard is showing signs of spring. Here’s a link to a short video tour if you’d like a look. Cheers. http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#!/video/video.php?v=1378454219158&ref=mf
