Spring. Aaah. Can’t you feel that warm breeze? Feel the sun warming the top of your head? Smell the amazing aroma of crumbly, fertile soil as you dig in the garden?
Nah, me neither.
It’s in the high 30′s here today. It is sunny, but not nearly sunny enough to warm much of anything other than the lettuce seedlings growing in my hoop house. But it is spring, and for that I am eternally grateful. Winter is finally officially over, and I have eggplant, peppers, basil, and thyme growing under my grow lights. Life is good.
Nothing is blooming yet around here, but a quick (very quick—it’s cold out there!) stroll around my yard this morning gave a hint at what I can look forward to. Daffodil, tulip, hyacinth, muscari, and bleeding heart foliage is evident all over the garden. The crocuses are in bud–hopefully I’ll have blooms early next week. Here are a couple of nice shots from the garden today. Enjoy!
