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.
