These guys are back...and I won't lie and say I'm thrilled about it....there's something about being woken up each morning at 4 am by a choir of raucous carousing cacophony of crows...well you get the picture...    They are a sure sign of spring.

Who's been working on their garden list all winter? .  I've got to remember to add a tiger eye sumac to my must have list...these are so beautiful year round. .
