Mother Nature was a tease all weekend with every form of spring cuisine. She dished up rain, snow (at higher elevations), cold, and sprinkled in a little sun. It feels like spring is in the air because the weather is ever changing, which is the truth nature of spring.
Sunday I decided to take a peek into the little flowerbed in front of our home. The only thing visible, except for last years debris, was a tiny hint of green from the woodruff ground cover. There is nary a speck of anything poking through the soil, which makes me a little sad, as I planted snow drops and crocus bulbs last fall.
As I stood and looked around the neighboring flower beds I spotted something worth investigating. Can you see it, right there, across the street? That little bit of a glow? Off I trotted to see if I was imagining it.
Can you see it now? There! Surely it's not a trick of nature or an errant bloom? It IS a golden glow! Several bunches of gloriously golden flowers are coming up in front of the neighbors house!
Since there is such a profusion of the "about ready to bloom" little darlings, I think this is a true sign that spring will come. Spring is just around the corner, but it's March, so hang onto your hat!
