sunny saturday

Yesterday was the first really lovely foretaste of spring. DH and I spent the afternoon working in the yard. Picking up sticks and branches. Picking up winter trash. Enjoying the flowers. Planting a few things in the garden.

The little 6″ ‘Tete-a-Tete’ daffodils were the first to bloom last year (on March 17) and the first to bloom this year on March 7. Ten days earlier this year. Does that mean everything else will be earlier, too??

The tiny blue flowers of Persian Speedwell are all over the yard.

The crocus are scattered just outside the back door.


We found a few snowdrops under the apple tree. Didn’t know we had any. I want to plant more this fall. I love these little flowers that are often the first to bloom each year. We had some where we lived prior to this home and they often bloomed the first week of February.


Zak enjoyed the warm sunlight, too.


We planted spinach, chard, radishes, and mustard in the raised garden bed.

Several bunnies were spotted in the yard.

I am so ready for full-blown spring.

    Yes, we did plant spinach. We’ll plant some more spinach and radishes next weekend if weather permits. And once it warms up enough, I have some heirloom lettuces I want to try. Last year the garden greens didn’t do well. It was too cold and wet.

    Beautiful photos of your signs of spring! I miss daffodils and crocuses (croci?!). *grin*
