Spring is here

It’s a very late spring and still cold, but how wonderful – the magnolia, cherry and daffodils are just now blooming. At last!

In February I started looking for signs of spring. The Witch Hazel blooms first in the midst of snow. As the weather started to warm and the snow began to melt, I looked closely at the ground to see if any bulbs were coming up, and sure enough there were early Snowdrops and Crocus, followed by Daffodils. It’s a time of expectation and hope such as no other in the year.
