First Blooms!

Spring really is here! Even though it's just begun to feel springy, and we are not safe from freezing temps or snow yet, the flowers are eager to get on with things. I hadn't checked the flower beds in a few days, but today when I checked, BINGO! I found blooms!

Many of my bulbs and perennial plants are putting forth some real effort, but the two posies above win for earliest blooms. The tulips and daffodils are coming along, but it will be awhile yet before they show their pretty faces.

Of course there are plenty of dandelions growing. Looks like I need to get some weeding done already!

The ants think it's safe to come out. They are very busy running to and fro. I have no idea where they are going or why, but there are plenty of them out doing whatever it is they do. It is not easy to snap a photo of them. I asked nicely, but none of them stopped to pose, so I just clicked away as they ran on by.

The dogs spend the winter hurrying to do their business and get back inside, but the past few days have been warm enough that they are content to get a little sunshine time. What a "ruff" life!

Ahhhh, spring!
