A few things are starting to bloom around here and I occasionally get a strong whiff of spring but it only lasts a few minutes. I'll be very glad when it gets warm. I really do not do well in cold weather. I planted these crocus, (croci, crocuses, crocamungi?) for Allen and many of them are blooming now but I was suprised at what a short life they have. The blooms only last a couple of days. I also read that deer LOVE them so I don't know how much longer they will be with us. I did not know that before I planted them. I am trying to cultivate a lot of native plants that deer are not particularly fond of since repellents don't seem to work well and I don't want to have fences around everything.
We are getting a good bit done on the house and I hope to post several things soon. There are just not enough hours in the day sometimes. If spring is arriving where you are, then step outside for awhile and enjoy it for me! And you!
