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.
And don’t forget to pop on over to What’s Happening Ohio for a read.
I love seeing signs of springs. I could here spring sounds in the woods the other days.
Sure it wasn’t a crazed chipmunk stalking you? LOL But seriously, what sounds?
Frogs that we affectionately call “spring peepers”. Note that this has nothing to do with seasonal voyeurism.
Good one! Good one!
That’s high praise coming from you.
A nice sign indeed! I hope it takes root. 😊
Me too! So far so good!
Spring is my favorite time of year and I always loved those first signs of springs rising up from the dirt. Stay well my friend!
Spring blooms bring hope and I’m trying to stay well…. thanks 🙂
A new plant in the making! Plant more to cheer the world up with lovely blooms. Take care my friend and stay safe
When I can get out again my goal is to start working on the garden again. You take care too, my friend 🙂
Stay Safe too my friend.
A lovely crocus. The first flowers of spring.
I think this might be a tulip by the size of the leaf but who knows!
Certainly not I.
