Spring is almost here.  The calendar says so, even if the weather doesn’t. But Mother Nature always shows up for the party, even if she’s late.

By this time, I’m getting anxious for all the telltale signs of her arrival and thankfully, there are many.  If I don’t see the snowdrops because they’re still buried under snow, I can look somewhere else and see the spikes of crocus poking out of the icy ground.  (How do they do that?)

The plants out in the greenhouse and in our house have started actively growing again after slowing down quite a bit during the winter.  Lots of tender new leaves are popping out and some are even flowering, due to the lengthening daylight hours.
