It’s here! The first day of Spring! I’ve been waiting all winter for her! (Spring IS a female, right?)
Of course, I woke up this morning to a light covering of snow out on the deck, but it didn’t “stick to the grass”. Ha – the ground is too warm! My crocuses heralded Spring a little too early this year, thanks to the extremely warm temperatures we had in February. I’m not complaining! This photo was taken back on February 20.
And the Snowdrops bloomed for the first time this year, I was so excited! While I was out filling the bird feeder, this little guy shyly said “Hello!”.
I planted these bulbs 2 years ago, and have been waiting patiently for their arrival. These guys showed up on March 8. It’s so wonderful to have some color poking through. This winter was one of the warmest on record here in the Pittsburgh suburbs, so it will be interesting to note the arrival of these early bloomers in the years to come.
