Dave , what a great article, reminding us that spring is truly beautiful; a season of hope. Thank You! Us'ns here in the Northeast haven't made it yet, though, not by a long shot. The only ground we see here is where it melted a bit in places where we kept paths clear... There must be a good 6" yet of solid concrete snow out there (down from 3;, so yes, there is progress!) Thumbs up and it's scheduled to go back down to near zero tomorrow night after exactly 36 hours above freezing all "spring..." So if you don't get quite as many enthusiastic responses, that's why!

Still -- God willing spring WILL come, and we will have all of those lovely flowers, as well. It will be nice to have daffodils for Pentecost! Lovey dubby

Thanks for all you do to inspire us all!

Go with God.

Hurray! Hurray! I love this time of year. Bulbs of all kinds are coming up early for us this year. Species tulipa are almost done now, along with most of the daffodils. The hybrid tulips are just starting. Anemone, some of the miniature iris, grape hyacinth, erythronium are all coming on now. Even the L. martagon and other forms of lilies are coming up from winter rest. There will be months of beautiful blooms to come. Lovey dubby
