Springtime chills

Yesterday was the first official day of spring and the weather is hovering somewhere around “my fingers are freezing and my toes are numb” – i.e. 30 degrees.

Despite the cold, spring signals a rebirth and in my garden that rebirth has definitely begun.

I see clumps of green protruding from the brown ground cover and remembering the garden last year, I know them to be tulips and daffodils.I also have some greenery growing under the window that I DON’T recall from last year. They look like lumps of thick green grass. Time will tell what those are, I suppose.
And the lilac bush has tiny buds on them already starting to show.

Ahh… springtime at last… where are my mittens?
