Spring Fever? Yup, little bit!

Let's take a little break from the bling to enjoy this gorgeous weather, shall we?

Welcome to my garden. I just wanted to share with you some signs of spring that are popping up around my yard.

The spirea is beginning to bloom. The metal little trellis thingy is what I cut my hand on while weeding this flower bed. Nothing major people, just a flesh wound and yes, I'm still current on my tetanus shot. Maybe I should stick to the jewelry. LOL!

A tufted titmouse at the feeder. My little diva, the 6 year old (otherwise known as 003), wanted the birdies to eat from her hand but it was not meant to be as the holy terror (004) refused to sit still and kept scaring the birds off.

The crocuses are done blooming but they looked so pretty while they lasted.

The lamb's ears are now filling in where the crocuses were blooming.

That's our fat cat, Schayna, scaling the fence.

Pulsatilla Vulgaris, or commonly known as Pasque Flower. This one is new to me but I'm told it is native to PA. It's a perennial, gets to be 8-10" high and enjoys full sun to part shade.

The maple tree has buds on it!

Ahhhh, I wish you could smell the hyacinths.

A couple of the fishies in our very murky pond. I was so relieved to see that they survived the cold winter.

More garden pics will follow as more plants bloom. I also have a very scary before picture of our veggie garden. Makes me sad to look at it with all the weeds and so neglected. Hopefully I'll get out soon to clean things up (good intentions, right?)

For my facebook friends who have already seen these pics, I apologize for being redundant. I'm just so happy for the warmer sunny weather!!!!

Enjoy your day! ~Heather

Spring?? We STILL have lots of snow here. :( It is starting to melt...but it will be awhile yet.

Your pictures are very nice though!
Have a great day.

Lovely North Dakota is home to me!! :) I do like seasons so normally it's all good...just not sure we get spring this year. Always a possibility of more snow in April....but who wants to think of that?
Off to clean out my car from the winter travels. Trying to tell spring to come. Clean car...dry roads. :)
