Here they come!

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.

Daffs 7412By 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 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”… won’t be long before spring’s colors burst on the scene.
