Spring Color Starting to Show

I’m stretching here when I say we are seeing color, but I am really ready for lilacs, daffodils, and peach blossoms. From a hint of purple on the double-flowered lilac to a blush of blue on glory of the snow, I had to hunt high and low to see spring, but I did find a bit.

We have a rainy weekend ahead, which means the most I get to do is squeeze in yardwork between downpours and make lists of what else I need to do. I’m also starting more seeds. I hope the weather is nice in your part of the world!
