Spring is Here!!!

Thank God! Winter is over. Spring has arrived! This weekend heralded 75 degree days, light breeze and sunny. I used the time on Saturday to drastically trim the bushes, which had totally overgrown the porch and each other. I also picked up two cubic yards of mulch, and Becky threw that down on the new daylily bed on the hillside. I also did the final Spring preparations on the roses, cut them all back, pinned the climbers back up and removed the protective wrapping and mulch and dirt from the bases. They look like they all weathered the winter fine.

I now have crocuses, vinca minor, and Lenten roses blooming, and the daffodils are just around the corner, and just after them, the tulips will be up. I should have daffodils by this weekend.

I have to say thank you to my niece, Emma, for providing me with such wonderful crocuses. They look really stunning in my beds! Thank you, dear!

Your flowers look great! I wish I could say Spring had arrived in MN. Dad said we had a blizzaed last week. The weather here in Carmel is about the same as yours.
