Our peach tree is in bloom already in the middle of March. Spring blooms are about a month early here in Raleigh. Our daffodils are already done blooming. Crazy weather.

This little snake came out for some sun when I was cleaning up the garden. I was getting ready to plant some peas. Check out the tongue.

It is March 6th and the Saucer Magnolias are in bloom already. The daffodils have been in bloom for a month already. The Bradford Pears just starting blooming. It is about a month ahead. Achoo….

This is the original shot. I used the ADB_Polapan preset in Lightroom 4 to make the above image and used an Elements frame effect to add the border.
