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!

We can only ever grow them in pots in the house. But yes they smell so wonderful and yes spring is almost here again

Have you noticed the mockingbirds are singing away? It must be spring, even Florida has spring!

Nancy, gorgeous hyacinths! As to spring being on its way? Maybe so...It said 53 on my car thermometer yesterday! Odd because less than a week ago it said -18!!!!
