The calendar says it's February 21. We're likely to have cold temps, ice, and/or snow next month. But if you ask the flowers, it's spring.
I planted a variety of daffodils last fall, and two of them are open. Others have fat buds getting ready to burst open, and I'll collect their photos as they bloom.
Last weekend, I spread compost over the garden area to take advantage of the (hopefully) rain we're supposed to receive this week. I've planted red onions and garlic in the bed already, and will start some seedlings this week.
Here are a few signs of spring at my house:
Gerber daisy (such a mild winter, they survived. I will trim the dead leaves once I'm sure winter is over. Right now, they're insulating the plant)
Oh, and dog hair. If the dogs are shedding, is the cold weather over?
(And Freki's already been to Sonic for ice cream. She says it's never too cold for that. She also keeps eyeing the swimming pool, but I think that's rushing things a bit.)
What, if any, signs are you seeing at your house that Spring isn't far away?
The garden is full of beautiful flowers, many already forming tomatoes or cucumbers or other yummy veggies just waiting for a day of sunshine. I believe we've had 25+ inches of rain this month. Yikes! At least I haven't had to water the garden (yet). And just look at how it has grown!
So, today I have a guessing game. See if you can identify all the lovely blooms in the photos below. I was surprised by how beautiful a couple of the flowers are. Do you have a favorite veggie bloom or one that is unusually pretty?
