This weekend as the temps crept upward to 68 I ventured out of my house to inspect the yard and make plans for this year's garden. This time last week my herbs were under a blanket of white snow again this year which is rare here in the deep South.
As I rushed cold and shivering from the car to the back door last week I had failed to stop and take note of what was happening in the garden. That is why this caught me by surprise:
Is that what I think it is? Could it be true? Dare I say the words out loud? The first signs of Spring! Yes there in the snow (did not take the pic that day) peaking out my crocus, the first to bloom...early Spring bloomers... that would mean only one thing...this must be early spring! I refuse to get what I call "Spring Fever" and start planting but boy it is hard when the days are 70. After a week of warmer temps my daffodils popped out their happy faces
