As the dark clouds gather overhead with the promise of rain for days, I am thinking Spring. The Daphne bush outside my bedroom window is laden with dark pink buds and I look forward to the heady perfume they will give once the flowers bloom. Tulips are popping up in the neighborhood, the magic of Crocus Pokus are carpeting the roots of old trees and little green shoots are making their way up through the soil.
As soon as this rain clears up I have big plans for getting dirt under my fingernails and getting the garden ready for planting time. Of course it could still be awhile, but it's nice to dream.
Is it looking like Spring in your neck of the woods? Are you someplace getting ready for an entirely different season?
