Signs of Spring

Huzzah! Spring is nearly here! Here's how I know:

1.  I saw the first shoots of crocus and daffodils today! They may well have been hiding under the snow for a while, but today's thaw let me actually see them. I've been forcing crocus inside too. Those shoots also thrilled me, but not as much as the ones outside that indicate winter's days are numbered!


2. The Indiana Flower and Patio Show is in town from March 8 to March 16. And after the winter, there's nothing like that first flush of inspiration I get from seeing all those flowers in one place. Who cares if they're nearly all hyacinth, tulips, and azaleas? They're flowers! In March! 

Come on, spring!
