Life Returns!

  1. Our mild weather continues.  Last week we had some lovely warm weather and I was able to get out and tidy the gardens a bit.  And now we have had a few days of rain and little green shoots are popping up all over!  Very early for us.  Very nice.  Even the grass is turning green.  Usually at this time of year the grass is still buried beneath the snow.   So this is a treat.

The pussy willows have burst open.  They almost shimmer on this overcast day.

The garlic is up.

And this little catnip has poked up through the straw.

All before St.Patrick’s Day!  It lifts the spirits to see life returning to the gardens.  And this is just the beginning!  Mother Nature is just awakening… …there is MUCH more to come!

Happy Spring, everyone!
