BUT SERIOUSLY!!! I am so ready to be done with Winter! I know lots of you are ready, too. So imagine my delight when I started to see a little green in my flower beds :) Whew, thank goodness! Spring will be here soon!
The first evidence we had was on the fig tree - as you can see it has gone crazy!!
Remember it used to look like THIS!
We might still have to wait for the figs to be delicious and plentiful - so in the meantime, enjoy these sights from my front yard:
Ah, dafodils - all of mine are restricted to this patch in the rear / center of the flowerbed... not sure who planted them like that so I'll probably redistribute them when they quit being so beautiful :)
This little sprig is new growth on my hydrangea! Yippee! I can't wait to see how it does this year! It had better bloom!!
These are some hyacinth bulbs I clustered in a pot - actually 2 pots - on my front porch :) They'll be so pretty when they bloom :)
The pansies have really taken off now that we have had some sun mixed in with the wind and rain :) Here's an impressive bunch:
And just look what I found over in front of the Iris bed - a hyacinth about to blossom :) in the background you can see the irises beginning to make little green shoots:
And we have something new to look forward to this summer - Last year Brad gave me the pink and white rose bushes for Valentine's Day and this year he sweetly gave me a Red Rose bush. I put it in the ground last weekend and look at how much it has grown since then:
Yes, I am officially looking forward to spring and summer time. I've got lots of bulbs in the ground and I can't wait to see how they do. I have alreday chosen the perfect spot to sit and watch the garden grow...
I'll save ya a seat if you care to join me :)
