Update

I announced earlier today that I'm was jealous of the fact that my Mom had sprouting plants (which she very sweetly agreed to share with me), and then Matthew and I went outside to play. (Matthew and the pup had a fabulous time running around, by the way.) I decided that I hadn't checked on the spots where tulips *should* sprout since Friday. And voila! SPROUTS! I was so excited! The tulips, a dear nurse gave me when I left the hospital, had a very rough season last year and I was so afraid they weren't going to survive. But there it was, sending something up. The tulips I bought last year, because they were just so beautiful and spring like, are also sprouting like crazy. Then I noticed the jonquils I transplanted last year are sprouting like crazy too! Oh happy day. I know I'm a bit of a plant nut. It's ok to giggle. I just thought you'd be dying to know the latest. ;)

New growth in late winter/early spring is always so inspiring! It makes me happy to see my signs of plant growth. I'm glad your plants survived the winter! And you can still have some of mine if you would like!

Remember last year, when your flower beds grew flowers AND bunnies?

Yes! I keep checking to make sure it hasn't happened this year! (I rather think they ate an expensive clumps of daylilies to make the hole.)

Hey--YOU planted the salad bar!

Yes, I did, although I didn't realize at the time it would be a salad bar...of course the bulbs might just not have made it...
