I love this moment of every year when the first spring bulbs bloom in my garden. Talk about joy. Today is an unseasonably warm day. 20C in March. Glorious. Despite the early warmth, my crocuses aren't that far off their regular blooming schedule. I always write the date on my calendar. Last year, the first crocus bloomed on April 1st. In 2010 it was even earlier--on March 15th. No matter what the weather is in the upcoming weeks, warm or cold, it means we have turned the page.
I think I might paint some crocuses this week. I hope you are all having a lovely weekend.
