It's been a crazy couple of days... I have SO much to tell you about. I am just itching for some showing off... but as usual I have not downloaded any lovely pictures for you lovely readers. I AM SORRY. I'll make it up to you I promise.
Over Easter we were visiting family and generally enjoying ourselves and the lovely warmish weather (5-10 degrees Celsius). We had snow last week (no joke) so we'll take what we can get. The plants are enjoying the weather as well, and it seems that Spring has really arrived.
Lately, I have been having so much fun watching my tulips come up in the front garden; it is SO exciting. Tulips are my absolute favourite flower. In our area (we are Zone 5 for you gardeners), we plant bulbs in the Fall and then cross our fingers all winter and wait expectantly in the Spring for the little green leaves to poke out of the ground. Of course there are some that get eaten by squirrels (little buggers!) and other animals before they have a chance to grow, but when they start growing out of the ground it's like magic.
The front of our house used to look like this.
I hope you have something growing! I'd love to hear about it if you do. Are the flowers out in your city?
