Signs of Spring

April 20, 2011 at 1:54 pm 2 comments

Spring may be dawdling in its appearance, but there are signs of it coming. Here’s a lone crocus in my flower bed.

The narcissus and daffodils have opened too, and tulip stems have emerged from the soil, waiting for the right time to open their buds. We’ll have plenty of tulips; I planted a whole bagful of them in the fall.

This morning, my husband spotted some ducks in our backyard. I’ve never seen ducks there and wonder how far they travelled.  Alas the photos did not turn out. After I returned from a Business Associates Breakfast, I saw a brown rabbit in our yard—an adult perhaps looking for food for its young. And there have  been squirrels digging in flower beds. So that’s where they hid the nuts and seeds last fall!

I’ll post more photos as the tulips come into bloom.

    Bravo to that one crocus! May it soon be joined by many more.

    It’s joined by another, but mostly by grape hyacinths beginning to open and more paper-white narcissus. Maybe the squirrels feasted on the other crocus bulbs. I may have to get more of those for next year.

    Grape hyacinths (Muscari) outnumber the crocus about a hundred to one.
