Man, that got here fast.
Petals are falling from the sky everywhere and I'm discovering plants I never knew I'd find growing in my yard. Yellow tulips! Planted decades ago, no doubt, and still eager to burst forth when the conditions are just right.
Fruit trees are bristling with blossoms you'd never have suspected were tucked inside those gnarly branches just a few days ago.
It's a good feeling.
The annual renewal, after months of harsh wet rains and winds, is such a thrill, it's almost worth going through winter each year, just so we can have spring every 12 months.
Am I already looking forward to next spring? Yow. No.
Today we brought home a crook-neck squash seedling, two pepper plants, some chives, and a dozen tiny plastic cells of mache. And that's just for starters.
Gotta get our winter-white thumbs into the soil and see if they will turn green.
