I can't believe I turned the calendar to April today. Where is the time going? Before I know it my boys will be out of school and the craziness of summer will be upon us. But in the mean time, I am going to enjoy SPRING!
I walked around this morning surveying the affects of Winter on my yard. The snow is finally gone and most of the mud has dried. My day lilies are up, the rose bushes and honeysuckle are leafed out and I noticed my lavender plants putting out new growth! I got out the Easter Bunny flag too. It's much more suitable for Spring than poinsettias.
It's a very exciting time of year. We can finally open the windows and let fresh air in the house! The birds are chirping and I really want to get my hands dirty and start planting annuals in my containers. Sadly, I must hold off a little while longer. I live in the mountains and we can have snow and hard freezes as late as the end of April. So, for now I will have to peruse seed catalogs and browse Pinterest for gardening ideas.
I found this lovely little weed blooming when I was walking around this morning. It looks a little like a Penstemon, though I'm sure it's just a weed. It's rather pretty, though, don't you think? I was happy to see it anyway. It's a perfect reminder that Spring has definitely sprung!
