It is officially spring now. Even if it is just fifty-three degrees and cloudy outside, the calendar says that it’s spring, so maybe the weather will live up to that now.
It snowed a few days ago, but everything has melted by now. There are a few flowers that survived the cold, and I took some pictures today to celebrate spring.
I found this cute chubby dandelion poking out from the grass. I like dandelions as long as they aren’t in flowerbeds or gardens.
There’s also a nice patch of Speedwell by our clothesline. The flowers are so tiny and delicate!
Red Henbit is everywhere from now until next winter. Sometimes there are patches of it so big that the whole ground has a red-ish color.
Our pussy-willow that we planted last year is doing well. I love how soft their catkins are!
Our daffodils were quite wilted by the snow, but they came back, even if they do bear a few scars.
A bit of the creeping phlox in our flowerbed has bloomed as well. Creeping phlox is beautiful when there’s a big patch of it.
Yay for tulips! I can’t wait until they bloom. Tulips are some of my favorite bulbs. They are so big and vibrant and all around gorgeous.
The grape hyacinths have also been scared by the snow, but they still have color in them. I remember I we used to collect tons of these flowers and strip off the grape-like blooms and pretend they were our food.
Are there signs of spring where you live?
