Late Awakening

Finally spotted Terrance today. He apparently spent the winter just off the porch in the eastern-most part of the Vinca bed. That's only a foot or two from last year's spot. Must be a good one.

This is the latest I've ever known him to awaken. Last year he was up and about in early April. At any rate, he weighs 360 gm (12.6 oz), which is about average.

Meanwhile, the pool is open, although its only 60 F. With temps in ABQ expected to be in the lower 90s by the end of the week, it'll be swimable by next Saturday, in time for Mothers Day.

Also open are the iris. This year the bronzes are particularly strong.
