Signs of spring!

There's no stopping spring now! The crocuses have come and gone, but the daffs and forsythia are in full bloom, and all manner of green foliage is popping up from the garden. These darling little Tête-à-Tête Daffodils are great in small garden areas. Plant the bulbs in the fall or from pots bought in spring. Below, our Wickwar Flame heathers are turning from their winter red color to orange, and eventually they will turn lime green for the summer. The spring peppers are still peeping, the grass is greening up, I smelled a skunk the other night, my neighbor's cherry trees are starting to bloom, and we have a Tom Turkey in the yard gobbling away, trying to attract a mate...all signs of spring!
