Spring . . . ?

 February Showers Bring March Flowers

I have been worrying the entire fall and then winter about my flowers. I spent a lot of time last year (and so did my friends and family) planting bulbs and preparing myself for a fantastic, beautiful spring. Well, some flowers started coming up in November, and I started worrying. They kept growing in December and January. In February, bulbs appeared. I kept worrying that they would all freeze and die, and I would have no flowers. But last week, Jill went outside and said, "Mom! Purple and white flowers!" Sure enough—my crocuses are in bloom.

I guess I don't have to worry about not having any flowers. But I am curious to see if all the other ones will live or whether a huge blizzard is still lurking somewhere waiting to descend.

And because a post really isn't complete without a picture of one of my children, here is this photo of Jill. I said, "cheese," and this is what I got. I wonder from where she learned this pose . . . :)

  1. I love how ending a sentence with a preposition is something up with which you will not put. :)

  2. Crocuses are supposed to be early spring flowers anyway, right? I think they often come up even with snow on the ground?? I was so surprised to come down to Charlotte and see the trees in bloom and daffodils in bloom. I know those are pretty early spring things, too....but I just wasn't expecting it, especially since I feel like I didn't really go through winter this year. (And, can I just say that I really laughed out loud at the previous comment!!!)

  6. Ames, somehow I totally hadn't thought of that, but now that you mention it, there are a TON of pictures of me when I'm younger posing like that aren't there . . .
