Early Thaw

Is it winter or spring?

Only January 12 and there is an early thaw that has an iris by the pond poking its head through the earth. I'm not so concerned about the evergreens, like the ivy and hellebore, but I wonder about the impact of this false start on the primrose and the iris, when it gets cold again.

On the plus side, the thaw melted the ice in our little pond and Rob scooped the two remaining gold fish out to overwinter in the makeshift tank in the basement downstairs.

Today is also a day for Sail/Sale-ing. Rob, brave man, is out at the Boat Show on the first day! Me, I'm off to find a sale on winter coats...
