Just as the priest said in the movie 'Fools Rush In', "There are signs everywhere."
And in my garden, even though it looks like winter is still here, there are signs everywhere that say spring is near. Want to see some of them?
The irises are beginning to bloom. These are early irises, and there are three or four blooming in the garden right now, with a lot more to come - soon, I think.
The water pump has been turned on. The fish have to endure silence all winter, but in the spring, they hear the happy sound of splashing, laughing water.
Professor Charles Sargent decided to show off his first bloom of the year.
And while I was weeding, I saw something out of the corner of my eye that truly made my heart sing. The first grape hyacinth bulbs (muscari) are blooming! Spring must be right around the corner!
At least my gardener's heart hopes so!
