Signs of Spring

The snow is falling outside and all I can do is long for the Spring-like weather of last week. The weather was so mild that I donned my new shoes and went hunting for the signs of Spring in my garden.
My New Shoes!
It is so fun to see what is coming up in my garden this year.  We moved to our new house last Fall when most everything had died back for the year. I'm finding all kinds of little surprises coming up. 
Besides the tulips beginning to peek out, I'm finding lots of pretty early flowers that I don't recognize.
Some surprises that I do recognize and am happy to discover that I didn't kill when I cut it to the ground last Fall.

Glad to see I didn't kill you, Russian Sage!
Maybe I should have cut you back more, Vinca.
I even took a little time and began to Spring-up my new porch. Which seems a little silly right now with snow on the ground.
There's my front porch looking slightly Springy.
I also bought a little backyard friend. Meet my new solar powered owl from Target.
Hi, little owl!
It's time to say goodbye, Snow.  Go away and let us enjoy a little more of that Spring weather!

Have a Happy Day!

  1. Those pink and purple lovelies are Hyacinths. My favorite. Always a welcome sign that spring is on the way and they smell like heaven. :)

    1. Thanks for letting me know. I knew they looked familiar, but I've never had them in a garden of my own before. I might have to plant a few more for next year.
