Leap Year February 2016

Lots of stuff is blooming now at Westwind! Last year, we planted more daffodils and different types of bulbs like squill and allium, muscari and snow drops. Our daffodil tete a tete blooms earliest and the squills are rising. Hellebores have been blooming since late January, and the maple flowers started in mid-February.

the barred owl incident

I saw an owl on the side of our road, as you see too. i wondered if his wing was broken, but after watching this video, at 1:00 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KXmEGRciWtE, i think now that he was sitting on prey. waiting for me to leave. he was gone when i returned to check on him 10 minutes later. did he eat my ducks?
