Then I looked a little closer:
So I looked some more.
Those? Are the first buds on the pear tree.
I am doing a tappity dance.
Spring is springing!
As I kept walking around I found daffodils starting to peek through. Irises too. And the lilacs are heavy budded. They should bloom soon.
It'll be time to pull the last of the fall leaves off the gardens and see the new growth. Time to till the veggie garden, which already has winter onions ready for grabbing.
We already have new flowers ordered. They should start shipping in a couple of weeks.
I need to start my tomato seeds soon so they'll be ready to put out after Mother's Day.
I love the gardens. Digging, planting, planning.
It allows me to play in dirt.
