All of this talk about Spring made me do a little walk around our yard to see what signs of Spring might be showing themselves. Actually I said a little prayer before I walked out the front door that there would in fact be some sort of encouragement in the way of Spring. Please!
I was not disappointed.
-Seeds are sprouting
-Sun is showing up in places (like the front stairs) we haven't seen all winter
-the garden is waking up
-leeks and winter onions will be ready soon
-daffodils are about three inches up already
-the woodpile is much, much depleated
-there are buds on the maple tree out front...buds!
I'm glad I did all of that Spring spotting this morning. There is a fire in the fireplace again. We are expecting snow tonight.
Gotta love February.
