happy spring!

Happy first day of spring! Admittedly, it’s not looking like spring yet up in the mountains – we just crossed the pass this weekend and it was still very wintry. But at home in my garden, things are beginning to happen. Hellebores, chionodoxa, hyacinth, early daffodils and muscari are all in bloom, the pussywillow catkins are bursting, and the maple trees are putting out their first tender leaves. Despite the windstorm gearing up outside this morning, it feels like spring might actually be trying to settle in.
