We are still several weeks away from the official beginning of spring, but the past few days have been unseasonably warm. Mother Nature seems as eager as the gardeners to get on with the show.
The first crocuses are blooming, always the yellow ones first. They are sprinkled all over the property, courtesy of my kids and granddaughter.
Then the first spring beauties have made an appearance. In a few more weeks, they will carpet the lawn with their dainty white and pink-striped blossoms.
It is such a pleasure to walk around the property, spy on nature, and listen to the chorus of peepers down by the creek. The warm days may not last but at least we’ve had a promise of spring coming soon. The garlic is up. The cold frame has been dug up and replanted with lettuce, spinach and kale. I’m ready!
