I thought about the fact that this is the 15th, and thus, Garden Blogger's bloom day.
I had little hope that I had anything blooming yet.
I have been out, raking up the pine needles (there seem to be SO MANY this year!)
We stack the needles on one of our walking paths. And, then I noticed (look on the left, up the path) that we really DID have flowers already! Every year spring is such a wonderful surprise.
Although it shouldn't be a surprise. I see last year in March, my crocuses were blooming.
