Finally it seems like spring has arrived, but much later than last year.
Using Spring Break as my date marker, it’s usually still pretty drab for another week, so this is pretty normal. The daffodils are about 2 inches high, the daylilys and hostas are poking their leaves out and the chives are greening up. Actually, the daylilys and hostas poked up back during a warm spell in December, only to get shocked by the cold weather that followed. They seem to do that every year and I used to worry, but it always seems to turn out just fine.
Just for fun and cheeriness, when it is this drab time of year, I visit Michaels and find something bright to add some color.
