(this pic is from 2008 - will snap and replace with and 2009 pic soon)
With the lovely warm weather being so wonderful tonight, I thought I'd take a walk around the yard to see if any signs of spring are poking through the earth. And yup! I found the tiniest signs of spring! Little blades of crocus leaves beginning to sprout up!
Now last year I first spotted these green shoots of hope on March 14th! They came up the same time my daffodils and tulips came up - which did bother me last year because I THOUGHT crocuses were supposed to come up earlier - but what do I know?!
But, they are starting to spring up now - no flowers or anything - but, still, a little green is good on the eyes right about now! And they've grown - there are more little shoots this year. I had one or two in one area and now there's 3 or 4 in the same area! Woohoo!
What I want to be sure to get in the ground next year are some Snowdrops, I don't have any yet but have been eyeing everyone in blogland who does, they are so lovely!
