Spring Is Coming!
Even though we can't grow beautiful hyacinths down here in Florida, I did the next best thing! Walmart had a bunch of bulbs in potting soil, just starting to come up. So, I planted them next to my front walk - and now they're starting to bloom. And smell heavenly! I miss that smell so much - and now when I look at them, I feel a certain stirring of Spring!
And, this morning, there were robins in the yard! Usually we get about 3 different flocks doing a drive-by each winter. It was hard to take this photo, cause I just don't have a good enough camera to zoom in. But, it's always fun to see these guys - they hang around in the yard for a few hours, and then they're off again! So, if you're reading this up North -- they're on their way!
