It’s about time for the Pansies, Crocus, Hyacinth, Tulips and Forsythia, to name a few, to start showing their faces all over the place. The days are warming up and even though the nights are still chilly, and there is still the real threat of more hard frost before the middle of May, it’s hard not to get spring fever when the daytime temperatures are in the mid 60′s.
As I survey our “end of winter” garden/yard, it’s hard to believe it can ever recover. All it takes though, is a couple of flowers to start showing up and the winter blues evaporate and the excitement and hope of spring take over.
Some of the really early birds, like rhubarb, have already popped up and started unfolding, but it is the spring flowers that create the excitement and joy of spring.
I’ve been missing gardening…can you tell?
