LAst Thursday Girl #1 pointed out to me (with great glee) "Look Daddy! Flowers!" Sure enough the first crocuses (croci?) were blooming.
This afternoon, as the temperature reached 23C we spent time outside. Daddy finished cleaning the lawn of the winter's surprises and then wandered around checking on perennials. THe chives are nicely started, rhubarb leaves are starting, silver mound shows green beneath last summer's growth, daylilies and tulips poking up through the fall leaves.
Yes indeed, it must be spring.
