Tomorrow is the first day of Spring, at least officially. We’ve had spring-like weather for the last couple of days, and I couldn’t be happier. The flowers are starting to come up. So far we have had a lot of leaves with no buds, but yesterday we noticed some miniature daffodils in bloom, as well as a large purply-pink flower of unknown variety (we did just move here last fall). Today some of the Pulmonaria started to grow buds.
I love going out each day to see what is coming up now. My rose-bush is budding, as are lots of other trees and plants in our yard. M. and I have been doing some gardening, mostly removing a covering of brown leaves from last fall, and I plan to get out my books and try to figure out what all the things in our flower beds and gardens actually are now that I can see them.
We’ll be planting a little on our own this year, but not too much because I want to see what’s already there before we make any major changes or additions. We do have a few veggies to plant, and some strawberries, sunflowers and tomatoes. And watermelon, if I know my girls. Otherwise, we’ll just be enjoying what we already have.
I hope you’re all getting out into the beautiful weather if you’re up here in the NorthEast! Do any of you have plans for this Spring?
