Blue barlow is ringing in this month in the JAKE & META2013 "Year in Bloom" mini desktop calendar. Mayis off to an overcast start here in North Carolina, but warmer days are around the corner! Also ushered in by spring is at least one indigo bunting in the backyard. I'll try to snap a photo. We haven't seen him since 2010, and if you've never seen one, they're quite something—like a bluebird on steroids. Stay tuned!
