A Little Warmth And Sunshine

Is all it takes.

The garden is ready to grow when the conditions feel right.

We have ignition. It is a slow one, but that will do.

After the snowdrops, the crocus are next in line.

Yellow crocus are one of the earliest. There are plenty more. Many of which I have not seen.

'Arnold's Promise' has initiated its flowering sequence. I think it was a little stingy with bud set last year like 'Diane'. All the Witch hazels are not much more than twigs. Blooming at that size is a good sign.

The snowdrops steadfastly keep on despite repeated frozen burials.

A little warmth and sunshine melts my side of the scenic byway. What a difference a shadow makes.

I am ready to see some crocus here. I haven't had that delight yet. Lucky you.

Can't see that good is reason for asking.
