After weeks of working on wedding projects, I've finally made a little start on my Christmas SAL project. I had a bit more done until I noticed that it was in the wrong place, and you can see by the big holes exactly where I frogged. Hopefully that won't show once I do the part that really belongs there.
Meanwhile, out in our yard we have lots of signs of spring, at least a month earlier than usual. It's fun though to see all these lovely colors after all the winter grey.
Back in the Midwest crocuses would come up through the melting snow. They don't have to do that here, but they are among the first signs of spring in our area as well.
Even the currants are blooming!
The other day the paper said that the daffodils are in full bloom up north, and that heralds tulip season, again much earlier than usual.
This little guy is a start from the large bush in our sideyard; I thought it might do better in the front where it's sunnier.
If you look in the right spot from our bedroom window, this is what you see. Signs of spring are everywhere.
Not to be out done by their outside relatives, our houseplants are in a springlike mood. The african violets have buds, and this plant which comes from my sister's plant is full of little "goldfish" and very happy to see longer days with more light. Yea, spring!
