One day closer to spring!

At the beginning of February I started watching the plants knowing that, because despite their bare and unadorned branches, they are filled with life just waiting to happen.

(Yes, I can be a tad impatient. Why do you ask?)

Finally it is happening! The buds on tree and shrub branches are beginning to grow. This morning I saw little bits of green peeking out from the leftover dead of a cut down daylily. Once the crocus, daffodil, and tulip come up through the soil, the snow isn't quite so bothersome. The snow will eventually go away, and there are a whole lot of tulips that I'm waiting for.

Woo-hoo let's hear it for SPRING!

(Could you hurry...just a little.)
