Spring is Coming





Within the last week or so the daffodils that are in an abandoned bed on the property line to our north, bloomed. These have been blooming every January/February since we moved here in 2012 and have likely been there for 20 years or more. They are among the first things to bloom every year and I hadn’t been paying attention and then suddenly, there they are. I’ve been slow to drag myself out of my usual November/December winter stupor in the garden. I wasn’t ready to deal with it all. But yesterday we made some progress in cleaning up the flower beds and getting mulch in because things are going to rapidly change in the next four weeks. I’d like to hope we don’t have another freeze in store but I suspect we’ve got at least one more as we usually do in February.

Warmth can’t come soon enough.

    I saw some sort of pink tree blooming in Dickinson yesterday, and also yesterday I took my first photo of a Texas dandelion for the new year. Find those gardening tools, girl!

    Beautiful, beautiful daffodils. Will have to send you some of my Caribbean warm weather. Have not seen any daffodils growing here in Grenada. But my cosmos are in full bloom. Thankfully they bloom twice a year.
