Colours of Spring
The light pink hyacinths are showing a bit of frost damage, but they are still gorgeous.
Pretty bright green new leaves starting to push forth on the currant bushes. The lilacs and maple trees will be following soon I hope.
The blue scillia carpets the ground and flower beds. For such tiny flowers, they are a significant source of spring colour.
The never ending job of splitting wood. This is the rest of a load of large pieces which needed a more macho log splitter than we had. The axes, mallets and wedges, nor the chainsaw made a dent in those huge chunks, but a 25 ton hydraulic splitter took care of the job in just a few hours. Despite the mechanical help, there were a couple of tired guys after a weekend of splitting. They've stacked up almost 3 face cords from this pile already.
