The promise of spring

It wasn't but a few weeks ago I was waking up to mornings like this:


And despite the horrible weather elsewhere it has been very mild here. Mild enough for me to do quite a bit of gardening and yard cleanup.

I took a tour of things the other day to take inventory of what would need some cleanup and found the promise of spring popping up all over the place.

Daffodils
Forsythia


Rhubarb



Lilac

Andromeda


Daylilies

Maybe if I leave them half covered by oak leaves the deer won't find them? *crosses fingers*


I am looking forward to flowers but I'm really looking forward to going outside without an umbrella!

We had a forsythia bush in my yard growing up and my Mom always got so excited when it started to bloom. It was the first sign of spring! Good luck!
