Spring – Trying hard to make an appearance

Crocus

Golden crocus – proof of spring

Spring is trying its best to make itself known. For over  a week all I saw poking up through matted grass and leaves were golden buds. Then hooray – golden crocus blossoms.  Then it snowed. Blossoms closed, but remain ready for a reprise.

With such encouragement, I took a walk around the garden, and brushed away leaves while making a note that it is time to really finish spring clean up. The bed of primroses is green and healthy, but only one has been bold enough to actually bloom. Surely there will be more blooms within the week.

Elsewhere there are other spots of greenery. Daylily shoots,sheffie, rudbeckia, bee balm and Japanese primroses all sending out evidence of new green life. Real spring is on its way.

  • The signs are there–now if we can get the weather to truly warm…to even “normal” temperatures! (That’s the case here in the Midwest, anyway.) I know–patience, patience. 😉

    Isn’t it exciting to see something actually growing and blooming?! Come on spring, I am so ready.

    I have lots of snowdrops if you would like some.

    Beth – I am trying to be patient. The rain is helping. At least it is not snow or ice and I can feel it waking up the soil.

    Lisa – those blooms are so encouraging – and exciting. I am ready for spring, too.

    Judith – That is a tempting offer. I’ll give you a call! The generosity of gardeners is mythic.
