You Know It's Spring ....

... when

... hearts are bleeding;
[These are the first of the bleeding hearts to bloom and it's a volunteer growing in the path no less.]

... when


... hosta leaves unfurl;

... when

... there's a red tinge on the trees;

...when

... snow peas have broken the soil;

...when


... lettuce is green;

...when


...spinach two leaves appear;

...when

...blueberries bud;

...when

...eggs appear in the pond;

...when

... I spot the first dandelion;

...when


...multiflora rose in the woods turns green; and

... when
...the hummingbird migration map shows that the hummers have been here and moved on.

What's Up?

You ask "What's up?"


Daffodils all over the yard are mostly blooming.


This by the pond (name escaping me).


Hostas farthest along are against a wall on the east side under my study window.


Hyacinthe



Bleeding heart.


Bloodroot in perennial garden.




A's garden is mostly done.


Some doors are up.




The vegetable garden has peas up as well as spinach and other lettuces.  Sorry no photos.
