On Tulips and Buds

Yesterday was a glorious 57º outside. I grabbed the rake and set to work on the winter debris buried in our lawn. I was pleasantly surprised to see that our fall seeding worked! There were lots of little "grasslings" growing in the formerly bare spots.

I saw signs of spring everywhere...

Spring is coming!

WOW. Green... so that's what it looks like. Very jealous!

Our lawn has turned browner than any other lawns in the neighborhood this winter. I'm not sure why. Green is wonderful.

It was 3 degrees when I woke up. We have over 8 inches of snow that has fallen this week alone.

Oh how I would love to see grass & 50 degree weather! :)

Spring? What's that? :)

I'm so jealous! We still have 10 inches of snow before any sign of green!

I'm jealous of those buds and tulips!! It's still really cold here. Haven't raked the leaves out of the corners of the yard yet to see what's underneath, but I think it's still a little early here.

Oh, I'll have to go look in the yard for tulips today. It's hard to believe they're coming, with the sky all gray and cloudy.
