Oh Where, Oh Where is Spring?

While I cannot say it is totally springlike here, we are moving towards it.  Over the last 4-5 days we have lost lots of snow with above freezing temps and lots of sun.  Large areas of grass are starting to appear and they’re sort of green…well, in some places!

Update:  I wrote this post this morning and as of now (the evening) it seems like there is less snow and more grass showing.  What a huge difference a day makes!

No sign of bulb gardens starting in northern Illinois yet, though.  For a preview of what is to come, a beautiful bulb garden is in full bloom on Pukipuki Sugar’s dress.  And, the best part is that it is an everlasting reminder of our fleeting spring flower gardens.

Sugar has embroidered tulips in three shades, yellow daffodils, tiny grape hyacinths (yes, they smell like grape), and the ever fragrant hyacinths in purple (blue), white, and pink.  In our previous house all of these bloomed in my garden every year.

What will be blooming in your spring garden?

Pink tulips, daffodils, multi-colored hyacinths, and grape hyacinths are blooming all around the hemline of Sugar’s dress.
