Red-wings Return, 2017.

rwb

We are in the midst of an unseasonable warm spell. There have been robins in the area, probably over-winterers, and flocks of Canada geese have been flying over, headed north. Today, as I sat by the window reading a book, I glanced out and there was a treetop full of red-winged blackbirds! So that’s it, it is officially spring. Here are arrival dates for Red-wings at Willow House over the past few years.

2016: March 6th

Heirloom Tomatoes

Just for a change from winter scenes, here is a photograph of part of the 2016 tomato crop, taken on September 28th. We still have a goodly supply of homegrown tomatoes in the freezer.
