A Few Minutes of Sunshine

Took a break this afternoon from my hibernation to wonder around the yard in a very warm sun.  You all know that spring is trying to come too early because we haven't had any winter to slow it down (and kill the bugs!).

The hellebores are in full bloom ...
and were begging to come into the house.
As were the camellias.

Everything else is getting ready to pop open.  We really do need a couple of days of cold to slow things down for a couple of weeks.  Sure do hope Mother Nature knows what she is doing!
