I was pulling out of my driveway this morning, and I happened to glance over into the garden, and guess what?
Daffodils. The daffodils are up! Little bits of ACTUAL GREEN, poking up out of the ground.
Spring is surely on its way.
Now I've gotta check the bleeding hearts. If the daffodils are up, the bleeding hearts can't be too far behind.
(oh, and for you non-gardeners, "bleeding hearts" are PLANTS, NOT the remains of something that I buried in my garden.) (ha.)
