Favorites Friday, Spring Lovin
I really love this new house. One of the things I'm enjoying most at the moment is discovering the yard. It was dead of winter when we moved in so there was only snow and twigs. We had no idea what was out there.
The ground has defrosted and we're starting to see warmer numbers on the thermometer. It's been really fun every day discovering what new thing popped up. So far we've been surprised by massive amount of tulips and other bulb flowers blooming, a huge rhubarb plant that grew over night, five or six chive plants going crazy in the front yard along with a few rosemary plants sprouting new leaves. The once lifeless trees broken by snow are now green, leafy and almost hiding our neighbors.
These things and more remind me that, allbeit short, spring has sprung.
So what do you do with all these new surprises? Hope you're inspired by some below.
