Sign of Spring

Today is the first day of spring and while I’d love to be able to go out and celebrate it, I am as the current phrase goes, sheltering in place.  Even if I wasn’t in a high risk group, there really isn’t a lot of places to go now what with most things closed so staying at home isn’t a bad thing.  It’s making me want to dig out some old recipes, clean out closets and cupboards and practice photo techniques.

But when returning from the mailbox with two days worth of mail (I only go out when I feel like it) I noticed something peeking out from the tangles of a bush in our front mulch bed.  It was a wee little flower bulb that had sent out it’s first leaf!  Mind you, I have been meaning to plant flower bulbs but never got around to it.  Instead, I’m venturing a guess that those darn chipmunks that were wreaking havoc in the neighborhood found one from a neighbors yard and brought it to ours.

I dug it up and replanted it into a flower box in the back yard.  I hope it makes it and I look forward to what it will turn into.   Life finds a way and so will we all.
