|Viburnum x bodnantense ‘Dawn‘ buds on ice
No real attempts at garden chores yet, but not everyone is like Ohio, still in the throes of winter. There were some blue skies, yesterday, however!
I will likely remember this winter for a long time to come.
On Ilona’s Garden some new pages were posted (1) a chores reminder for this month, along with (2) a new page on daffodils.
I love daffodils, they are so easy for me to grow and propagate. And nothing bothers them! ( Unlike the tulips, which deer nip off, or crocus which suffer attrition to the fattening rodent population).
Today I plan to make the rounds in the garden, checking on things: to see if bulbs are pushing up through the ground, still snow smacked, or how the viburnums bud look. Such activities rejuvenate my mind, and it feels quite mothballed after being cocooned inside all winter long (this was not the best season for my health, and I hope time spent outdoors this spring will restore me).
As always, spring and hope go hand in hand.

When spring is crowded, it was my experience that we had a veritable burst of bloom as everything seemed to be spring-loaded to flower. Maybe we will have such a celebratory entrance of spring this year, once it finally decides to arrive.
At least something will drag me away from pinning. Being cooped up all winter has done wonders for my inspiration lists.
What’s it like in your garden right now?
