We are officially a week away from the first day of spring. (Is anyone else boggled by the fact that we’re already halfway through March?) Sarah in Illinois is here today, sharing some of the signs of spring that have popped up at her property.
The temps are still too cool to actually do any kind of gardening outside. But while taking a tour around my yard over the weekend, I could see many signs of spring.
First, right outside my backdoor was a clump of chives that looks like they could be used right now.
The daffodils once again have fought their way through the gravel that we put down.
The lilies are coming up through the old growth and reminding me that I still have a lot of yard clean up to do.
The plum tree has some promise of buds to come.
The magnolia out front has some beautiful buds starting.
Even my mums are reaching for the sunlight.
And finally out in the garden, my strawberries are reminding me that time in my garden is not that far away.
What signs do you have that remind you that spring is coming?
Can I say I’m glad I’m not the only one starting the season with garden clean-up yet to do, Sarah? Your lilies look like they could be any number of spots at our place. We’ve had snow flurries every day this week, so I haven’t done a formal tour yet, but I’m hoping to see some more signs of spring soon.
