Right now it is pretty hard to believe it is actually spring. It snowed here this past week and it has been cold outside.
There are a few things that indicate spring is here though.
The Corkscrew Willow started putting out leaves a few days ago! It will be fully dressed for summer before long.
One of the Peony plants is starting to come up already! I can hardly wait for the blooms. They are usually big and gorgeous!
This purple stuff is coming up everywhere too. My yard doesn’t have it thick enough to look like a purple carpet but some places do. I think it is pretty when it comes up thick.
I’m not sure if it is a weed or some kind of grass but either way I like it.
And of course we have had Daffodils and Jonquils for a while now. Some of those are finished blooming already but a few are still going strong.
I’ve also seen a few Tulip trees blooming on the way to town. Those are really lovely!
So if it would just warm up a bit it would really feel like spring here.
How is spring coming along in your area?
