Spring Has Sprung!
Although the "official" first day of spring wont be for a few weeks yet,
(Sunday March 20, 2011 at 7:21PM EDT or 11:21PM Universal Time - kicks off the first official day of spring.)
you cant tell it by looking outside!
The Red bud trees are in full bloom, as well as the Pear trees and the Dogwoods.
Even my said herb pots which I kept going ALL winter dragging them in and out and watering them ONLY to lose them (I thought) to a frost last week....
seem to be making a revival!
See the little bit of green in amongst all the dead stuff?
tiny little buds of hope
The Bridal Wreath bush (spirea) is bursting with big fat buds almost ready to open.
Winter was brutal here - and long. Now nature is extending her conciliatory hand in a gesture of remorse by sending an especially beautiful spring it seems.
Time to throw open the windows and enjoy the colors!
