The lake is finally completely free of ice, but there is snow on the way in the next few days. Old Man Winter is not ready to give up yet. I did see snowdrops and crocuses blooming in a neighbor's yard. The French Pussy Willow tree is puffing out with all the tiny white fluffy bits. So, snow or not, the plants are growing. I am itching for planting season. I have bought a ton of seeds/bulbs- morning glories, gladiolas, butterfly flowers, and wildflowers. Some giant packets you are to scatter over your garden. The trouble with those is that I can't tell weeds from flowers and tend to pull them out. So I'm going to have to stake them out. The packets all say I can't plant until April. But April isn't that far away, is it? Soon, I will be complaining of heat and making jelly and jams from the strawberries and grapes. I'm looking forward to it. How about you? Are there flowers blooming where you live?
