Those things I planted a few months ago are actually growing!
There are signs all over our front yard showing that Spring is just around the corner. Back in September and October I planted a bunch of bulbs of tulips, daffodills, crocuses, snow drops and I think one other type of flower. Most of these are starting to pop up, with only the snow drops ( I think this is what they're called) having blossoms. We also have a little ornamental tree that is blossoming pinky red. I'm excited to see what else comes up over the next few months as we have yet to see what happens in the yard during the months of late Jan, Feb and early March.
