Sure sign of Spring!

This is the first crocus to appear at our residence and believe me it is exciting! As mentioned in earlier posts, the winter in Northern Michigan has been very long, snowy, and cold. We truly are ready for some color in our landscape and the crocus are a start, with daffodils getting ready to show their brilliant yellow color soon! Oh how exciting!

I snipped a few sprigs of mint today, along with some chives so the garden is beginning to awaken after a long winter nap.

It will be so nice to see the lilacs bloom and enjoy their unforgettable fragrance, not to mention the forsythia! How very blessed we are to be given the opportunity to enjoy nature at it's best!
