Signs of Spring

Linda Beth

As I went outside yesterday morning, taking advantage of a rare moment of sunshine to add to my meager compost pile in my back yard I noticed the first hints of the tulips emerging from the ground.

Which compelled me to investigate further... and here is what I found among the winter's detritus of an ignored yard:

day lilies

new shoots on an ancient rose that we transplanted last fall and I had assumed totally bit the dust

and my spindly little apple sapling, which is establishing itself from the roots of an old, mistreated, slightly damaged fruit-bearing apple that I had removed a couple of years ago!

you can *kind of* see the buds on the branches, though one of the drawbacks of these digital point-and-shoot auto cameras is that it doesn't always focus on what YOU are focusing on!

Now it's just a matter of waiting for the next dry day that ideally is over 50°F to do a little clean up around these beauties!
