Playing in the Garden

Today was a beautiful day and I was able to poke around the garden to look for signs of life. I found several signs including snowdrops, crocus; the tulips and daffodils are just 3-4 inches tall and no flowers yet.

I sat in the sunshine and enjoyed the birds; finches, chickadees, sparrows and of course, crows and bluejays. Inside, I watched Lily and Henry sprucing up in their birdbath. Yes, spring is here and everyone knows it!


  1. Sounds like a lovely day Julie. This early Spring weather seems to have brightened everyone's spirits.

  2. Your post made me realize that spring takes longer to start on the east coast. Our flowers start early here usually in late Feb to mid March. Sorry.

    There are benefits to living on either coast. i miss the beaches and the Atlantic Ocean and the Bay of Fundy and sometimes I really miss snow. A few feet for a couple of weeks is all I need to fix that.

    I am glad that the weather is warming up and that the earth is renewing itself for another Spring.

  3. Ah! Sweet sunshine and warmer days. We had a beautiful spring rain here today..... My Mom's doing great. How's your P? Hope things are okay there!! Thinking of you. Cathy G
