Green stirrings.

Something wondrous and strange is going on in my garden…





I know I shouldn’t get so excited…but it’s been awhile since I’ve seen anything that colour coming out of the ground.  (It’s interesting that they already look a tad ragged – the fact that I neglected to fertilize them last fall and a good number of hungry cohabitating rabbits may be to blame).

Of course, tomorrow is the first day of spring and we’re expecting a major snowstorm.  But just look at those bulbs go!  🙂


  1. Wonderful. The first sign of the end of winter. My backyard usually is the first place to show new growth but the gates are frozen shut so I can’t even check if anything is up yet. Let’s hope it is a quick storm and the last one of the season.

  2. I guess they just couldn’t wait any longer, me either. I hope we don’t get creamed with this snow thing. Nicola Crosby (Global Edmonton Weather Goddess) warned us that it will be cold for 4 or 5 days, phooey. I like your new header photo too 😀

    • Thanks, Boomdee! Hope you’re not getting too much of the white stuff up there…we actually had some sunshine for about five minutes this afternoon, but the snow is coming down again this evening. Stay warm and have a great weekend!

  3. I have a bit of green popping up to in the backyard. But the deer have already found it. They nipped off the tops of some tulips starting to grow.. We had a big dog till last June and had no issues with the deer. We had to put our dog down and now the deer are showing up. Very frustrating.

  4. I’m sure that does your heart and soul good Sheryl! I just hope that snowstorm doesn’t bring too much and it melts again really soon. HappySpring!

    • Thanks, Cathy! I honestly did a little happy dance when I saw them popping up out there. 😉 But now they’re thoroughly buried under the new snowfall and more is coming down. Oh well – that’s “springtime in the Rockies!”

      Enjoy your weekend!

  5. I can well understand your excitement at seeing some green. I will be so excited to see some here too and especially some colors. Enjoy the signs of spring and I hope they survive the snow. Hugs

  6. wow! that’s amazing you’re ahead of Ontario! we still have lots of hard mounds of snow and just this week a little bit of lawn showing around the base of trees. soon though… we are all so anxious this year.

I'm delighted to hear from you - thanks so much for your comments!
