Signs of Spring

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAfter a long winter, and an early taste of spring in mid-March, followed by 10 inches of snow the end of March, feelings of frustration were there, but after finding these amazing little crocuses blooming this afternoon – you know that spring is finally here.

Bleeding Heart

Leif and I are ahead of schedule at home – our yard is almost all raked, fertilized and over-seeded!  A walk through the perennial gardens at home gave way to spring.   My bleeding heart are up about 3 inches – only to continue to leap out of the ground with each passing day – some of my hosta are peeking through, and the pachysandra are such a bright green and illuminate the far corner of my hosta garden.

Our forsythia will be in full bloom by the weekend, and our magnolia tree has buds ready to burst into bloom!   Take time to stop – enjoy  the moment – breathe in the aroma of spring and appreciate all that you have.  The little things are truly the important things!
