So last week I was all down about spring not coming fast enough. Then, I was walking around our gardens and I saw lots of plants coming up! Lots of new green things (yay). I found the Chives really popping up (but I need to clean out the dry gunk from last year). The Bleeding Heart is raring to go! The Daffodils are starting, but they aren't going to bloom for a few more weeks. There are buds on the Bradford Pear tree. I also found a really cute, little, lonely Crocus that was sitting pretty.
It was fun to focus on the positive and see the little bit of color that is coming out instead of just seeing the "grey" out there. It helped that it was a nice, sunny day, too.
