Next, the leaves of these tiny daffodils come up. Yesterday morning, the daffodils were still hiding, but by yesterday afternoon they'd opened up. They're so cute - just about 5 inches tall and always the first to bloom.
We love sleeping with the windows open. At first, I wake up with a stuffy nose, but it's well worth it. The cats are big fans of open windows too. I don't think they sleep as much when the windows are open - they're too busy hunting the birds outside.
The fourth sign of spring is that pansies appear around our mailbox. I thought that last fall's crop might come back, but I got tired of waiting. So, a few packs of pansies later, it's beginning to look a little more colorful!
My apologies for the lack of posting. I could lie and say I've been too busy, but the truth is I've just been too boring to post. Just watching the world transform from gray winter to green spring!
