The Magnolias and Daffodils are beginning to bloom and it is beginning to look like spring. The blooms are such a welcome sight after the cold dark days of winter. Even though we really have had quite a mild winter this year, I love seeing the sight of the first blooms of the season.

We spent the weekend clearing out winter debris in our garden. My husband takes care of trimming our Knockout Roses and for the last several years the Pampas Grass. The last couple times I tried to trim it I ended up with Poison Ivy, I don't even go near it anymore

 Things are still a bit brown and gray outside but I think that may change soon, we have another week of warm weather in the forecast. I know from past experience the the cold revisit and nip all this new growth in no time at all, but I'm going to enjoy it while I can.  What signs of Spring are you seeing?

 It also Cherry Blossom Season and I hear they are early this year. Thats' an excursion that's hard to resist.

Such pretty signs of spring already. I officially pulled a weed today and that's as far as I've gotten concerning yard work. :)

We are enjoying signs of spring as well in the midst of the devastating floods. I hope we will have blooming flowers in our yard next year. Happy Spring my friend!
