I spy with my little eye

Last week I thought I saw the first crocus in my neighbor's yard, but it turned out to be a dirty butterscotch wrapper. This morning, however, I spied the tell-tale purple of a crocus in our very own yard. Hooray! Spring is here!

Oh my God, I'm SOOOO jealous!! Our snow is melting, but not fast enough for me. And with every new bit of garden that's uncovered, I'm obsessively scanning for any bulb action. I'll keep you posted!

So you think... I don't trust it until about May. You know, we had that big ice storm on April 1 in 97...

Big news!!! More snow melted and I can see just the tips of my newly-planted bulbs poking through in the back corner garden(can't remember if they are crocus, snowdrop or daffodil - a surprise to look forward to!). Yay! And Jenny, there may be more snow or ice, but it isn't gonna stick around long. We got snow on Mother's Day a few years ago, but it melted by the afternoon. No pessimism, please;-) (yes, I may be delusional, but I'm hoping to put the snowsuits and shovels away in the very near future)

Also, it snowed the day after I wrote this.

Why is your neighbor growing dirty butterscotch wrappers?

Hey Punk, that is really funny. But I prefer their crop of dirty butterscotch wrappers to the selling of illicite drugs.
