It was a little disconcerting to see snow on Saturday, We are supposed to be planting peas.

Signs of spring, my tomato seeds from 2013 germinated.

First Day of Spring - 2015



Your Amazon purchases help support this blog, Thank You.

Tonight at 6:45 PM it will be Spring, in spite of the fact that it is 11 degrees F as I write this. Lots of astronomical stuff today, vernal equinox, super moon and a solar eclipse. I gathered some spring photos from previous years to celebrate the day.

Grape Hyacinth

Japanese Butterbur flower
weird isn't it?

Crocus

New growth on climbing Hydrangea

By May these damn things arrive
I took the photo while she was feeding (ouch) but soon ended that misery

I think this is a type of snowdrop
I get more of these each year

Star Magnolia
Flowers arrive really early

Narcissus, an old standby for the garden

Hellebore, another early flower
