Dear Douglas:

Yesterday, Sunday, was one of our few gorgeous Spring days. Dad has been working on the yard and it begins to look very fine. There are quantities of yellow daffodils in bloom with one or two red tulips, the grass and trees are getting very green, as is also the forsythia bushes, for this year they were blighted and instead of the yellow blossoms coming first as is their custom, just the green leaves have appeared. Along the back fence Dad has been putting in small evergreen trees and has also placed one at the corner of the garage (SE corner) and a group of three small opposite them on Gray’s border line. Chip and Bing have a grand time while he is working out there and I don’t think Bing has had a bird this year since we put his belled collar on him...
