    here in Cotter, Ark., still with lots of gray, but much of it tinted by leaf buds. Several varieties of daffodils are blooming in my yard, planted long ago. People used to dig up and share bulbs, so there's everything from traditional yellow to white in many sizes and configurations. Buds on the redbuds, maple, and mulberry are tight, but growing. Out and about, some redbuds are in full bloom.

    Purple is spreading in the yard, with some kind of bluebell having spread into the dead nettle. (Wish it had a different name. As kids, we called it "Chinese violets." Must have come up through that hole we tried to dig in the back yard ;)

    Sunday, March 31, I saw two annual events I've wanted to (somewhat) date. The swallows flew up from their nests under the bridge to eat bugs in the air. Also, the trout must have spawned in Big Spring, because there are big trout treading water in the creek that runs out of it, guarding it from intruders.

    Milly, thanks for the great stumps! We have plenty out in the nearby holler, and all kinds of moss, lichen, and other fungi grow on them. Lots of them put out new trees, too, or just hold the soil on the hills for a while. Good stuff, and pretty, too!
