Today will be the first day the temperature is supposed to reach 70°F (21° C) and I’ve been watching the beds where I know the crocuses and daffodils have been waiting to make their appearance. Usually the crocuses are the first, but not this year.
By digging down carefully through the blanket of last autumn’s leaves, I was able to find several tiny crocus shoots, barely more than an inch high and thin as a piece of grass, but the daffodils have a grand head start. Several dozen have pushed their way into easy visibility and they’re getting taller by the day. Ah, I’ve been waiting for this!
I love it! This is a great shot.
So nice to see that they’re finally ready to do their push-ups!
Yayyy!! That’s the best news I have heard in a longggggggg time :).
I seems like it has really been a looooonnngg time, all right!
Yes! Congratulations and nice image too.
Thanks so much! Now I’m really starting to look forward to some fly-fishing–thanks to shoulder surgery, I didn’t even buy a license last year, for the first time that I can remember!
I wish you the very best this year enjoying fly fishing and the outdoors.
Nice. Envious. Before I can dig through the duff, we need about two feet of melt to happen.
I understand all too well. It’s rather frightening contemplating the bizarre snow patterns. The area around our cabin in Minnesota has had so little snow this winter that the water level in our lake may be at an all-time low–and last year it was at an all-time high!
“Anticipation, it’s making me late. It’s keeping me waiting”…..it won’t be long before spring’s colors burst on the scene.
I hope not–it’s still pretty early and we may yet get another freeze or two, but signs point to soon!
