First Taste of Spring

Spring has almost sprung in Kalamazoo! We’ve got Glories of the Snow and wild violets blooming today, with the earliest daffodils and hyacinths getting ready.

These seem all the more cheerful and amazing in contrast to our visit to still frozen Lake Michigan on Saturday:

I love these in between weeks when we can have sunshine and 60’s followed by snow flurries. How do you experience contrast? I find it invigorating!

    • I’m so glad you’re finding the book helpful, and of course, I do love flowers. LOL, I was telling David this morning, “I’m really not feeling that motivated to garden this year,” then proceeded to give him a running commentary on all the trees and bulbs we saw on our Saturday errands. By the time we got home, I was mentally planting snapdragons and pansies. David laughed, “Good to see CPL (Crazy Plant Lady) is alive and well.” It’s the faery in me! I just can’t help myself. 🙂
