Spring is Here!

It FINALLY warmed up! We are having 'normal' weather now and I hope it continues! Trees and bushes in my neighborhood are starting to bloom and so are some of my flowers.

I also have some daffodils that will bloom in mid-spring, they are up and setting flower buds.

The last set of daffodils are brand new, just planted in December. They are late-spring blooming and they are just starting to come up.

I just love spring! It is a time of renewal and all plants seem to burst into life! I look forward to it every year!!

Now is also a perfect time to plant the spring cool season crops. Around here, they normally go in after Valentine's Day. I planted most of mine on the 17th.  I have peas, carrots, broccoli and spinach in. The peas are just about to pop up, everything else has still yet to show (we did have some cold nights last week so I am sure that didn't help.)

The only other cool season crop I will plant is onions. I have sets from last year and new seeds for this year. I hope to put them both in this week. I will post another picture when everything comes up!

For now, all I have to say is three cheers for spring!
