Well, I hesitate to post this while some of my dearest friends are buried under snow -- but I'm so excited to see these little blooms I can hardly stand it! I know that more snow will fall before Spring really arrives, and even after that hallowed date. It seldom fails that intrepid crocus are smothered with the white stuff in late February and early March. The tulips generally must shiver through a snowstorm in April. That's fine, I'll take it. I'm just happy to see a tiny spot or two of color in the yard today. I must work, work, work in the studio before spring fever takes hold. But oh, I can't wait to get my hands into warm soil and play in the garden!
