We're late! We're late!

For a very important date! Ok, not really. But if you look at our dates from last year, we already had growth on our spring plantings by now! My only hope is that this snow now melts slow enough to stay in the ground after our very dry year last year. Fingers crossed. The weather forecast does look more promising, with nighttime temps above freezing by the end of this week (knock on wood)...

It's coming...

Spring that is! We had some rain yesterday (an entire day of rain without snow!) and the temps have remained above freezing for the weekend. It'll drop down again tomorrow, but we've had some snow melting. Even a small pond forming in the backyard! And by pond, of course I mean giant puddle.

This melting makes me think back to the little crocus bulbs I planted last year...I wonder how long it will be before we see their little green sprouts??
