Bloom, gosh darn it, bloom

I saw my first crocus and dandelion in bloom today.

Luckily, the crocus was in my yard and the dandelion was a mile away.

Today, even at 7:30 a.m., the sun dazzled my raggedy boulevard into looking like the emerald green of Ireland — or maybe I wasn’t quite awake yet and my eyes were deceiving me. After days and days and days of the plants shivering in the bountiful but chilly rain, I swear the daffodils and tulips grew an inch overnight.

Even the Siberian squill, which had been tantalizingly blue in bud, finally fully opened today. They are tiny but pack a punch.

Of course, the weeds are growing faster than anything else in the garden, but that just makes them easier to pull. At least, I hope it does.

I finally braved the overnight low temps and decided to plant my bareroot plants. I’ve had them for nearly a week and they don’t like sitting out of the ground so I decided they had to get planted. So far, so good.

After a rough winter and a soggy spring, it’s good to be in the garden. Hope you get in your garden, too.
