Happy First Day of Spring!

Despite the madness, it's apparent that life, does, indeed, go on around us. Won't you join me as I take a tour of our yard to see what's happening there this afternoon? 🌷

become new..." (2 Corinthians 5:17)

Tomato Plants
Before we go outside, let's take a peek at my husband's tomato plants. He planted them on March 5th. At this point, the plants are about two-inches tall and have already put on their second set of leaves.

With them the hope of a successful garden year looms large on our horizon.

Dandelion
A dandelion grows just outside the backdoor. I will look for dandelion leaves while we're out and about. They pack a lot of nutrition and will come in handy used as greens and spring salads.

Grape Hyacinth, Henbit, and Wild Onions
Grape hyacinths grow midst henbit and wild onions, both of which are edible. I will have to do some research to find out how each are used and do something with them.

Crocus and Henbit
The last of this year's crocus bloom amidst a backdrop of henbit. I see one last yellow crocus pushing itself up among the last of the purples.

Daffodils
Daffodils bloom along the frontage and their pretty yellow 
faces make me smile.

Lilac
The lilac leaves grow a little larger each day and it won't belong before they bloom.

I'm not sure what the name of these bushes are, but they grow along the south fence and are leafing out quite nicely.

In addition to all these lovelies there are tiny bluets, spring beauties, and a whole host of native spring flowers and other things blooming here, there, and yonder around the yard. 

Birds are busy building their nests and new life is springing forth on every front! 🌷


I trust that you and yours are well and I hope that you can get outside and enjoy this beautiful First Day of Spring 2020! 

What's blooming in your yard???

Until next time...
