The daffodils are set to bloom within a week or so, and the tulips are poking up and growing fast. The grape hyacinths seem to be nothing but leaves so far, with no sign of flowers at all – either I got duds or they flower a lot later then I thought.
We have flowers! I planted crocuses here and there in the front yard last fall, because I love having the bright little dots of color in the lawn in the spring. They flower so early that they’re done by the time we need to start mowing the lawn, and they sure cheer March up a lot! I’m still not used to how early spring arrives in Maryland. It’s about two months sooner than back home in Montreal. They still have over a foot of snow on the ground, according to my extremely jealous mother.
