What a difference just a few days makes. . . this beautiful spring weather has the plants coming up all over the place.
I was out last week and snapped a photo or two of what I could see coming up, and only found a couple of things to post in my blog the next day.
But by yesterday there were lots of green things coming up—this crazy, wonderful weather is really giving me spring fever!
These are the same tulips that were barely poking out last week:
And now there are irises coming up as well.
Perhaps the most exciting thing is that I’ve got mums coming back that I really wasn’t expecting to come back.
If you are a regular reader, you know that I just love mums in the fall—since they can be sort of marginally hardy I tend to treat them more as annuals. . . I put in 10 or so every spring and probably two or three of those will come back the next year.
But, apparently, this winter was so mild that most of the mums made it through—I’ve got so many mums coming up at this point that I may not even have to buy any this year!
I could definitely get used to this weather pattern.
