I have been inside for so long that I didn’t realize what changes were taking place in the world outdoors. Yesterday the temperature was so lovely and warm that I took a walk around the yard and was so surprised to see that spring had arrived in our yard without my realizing it – not in full bloom by any means, but starting to sprout – the beginnings of spring, always a thrill!
Here are a few things that I found ~
Irises growing – they should be blooming by Easter ~
Maybe this year I will find out the name of this pretty little plant that comes back year to year and stays throughout the summer ~
My Daylily family is coming up ~
Lots of buds on the branches of this bush outside the kitchen window (I don’t know the name of this one either!) ~
And finally I noticed that the whole yard was starting to green up! ~
This morning we had a nice thunderstorm roll through, and the sun is now shining again. The temperature should be in the upper 60′s this afternoon – another wonderful sign of spring ~ porch weather!
Is spring sprouting where you live?
