Spring has FINALLY come to Maine! Mud season ended in April. I love wildflowers, and violets are everywhere in my garden.
The first to bloom were the forsythias, a cheerful contrast to our white pines.
These run wild in our woods. Anyone know what they are?
I can’t remember the name of this blooming bush. I’m a sad excuse for a garden blogger.
True to name are forget me nots.
Azaleas grace our walkway.
Buzzing bumble bees are the sound of spring.

Vicki Archer@French Essence had a thought provoking post on vending machine books and other threats to independent bookstores. The Story Siren blogged about the ethical quandary of reviewing books by authors who are friends with the reviewer. Be sure to read the comments by other book bloggers too.
