The perennials are all coming up. My primrose gets nicer every year and really stands out amongst the other plants that are just emerging. The wind has been a factor so there had been a lack of blackflies (and I'm not complaining). I went for a walk in the woods with Holly today and got no bites. But when I went to change my clothes, I found the first tick of the season on my leg. Hoping it's the only one (yuck!).
