Dreaming of Spring

As the rains pour down, I watch the river spill over into the adjacent fields and dream of spring.

It’s just a little over a month away, and we’ve seen the signs. The bulbs are coming up in the garden, and the daffodils are starting to bloom along with this little beauty.

The sweet-smelling blossoms of variegated daphne are heavenly.  I picked it up last year at the Northwest Flower and Garden Show, and it has done well even in the shade of the front steps.

In a few more weeks, it’ll be covered in tiny flowers.

What signs of spring are you seeing?
