The last few days have been unseasonably warm and mild and I feel I may be coming down with spring fever. Not the infectious type- the type that waits impatiently for the seed catalogs and pokes around in the garden looking for shoots and buds.
The lilac and forsythia next door have buds, as well as my father’s magnolia. Daffodil shoots have been sighted reaching the heights of ONE INCH!! My grape hyacinths are looking quite ready to fledge.
No signs of the new daffodils I planted in the fall, but I must be patient and take advantage of the warmer days to do weeding and cleanup in the flower beds.
I am looking for the crocuses to be out any day now.
