Spring is in the air...and in my yard.
I went out today in the back yard armed with our camera.I found several signs of spring and wanted to share them with friends that are still stuck in the ice-age.
The hyacinths are the giant variety.They are any where from 12 to 18 inches tall. I received them in a Valentines flower arrangement about 7 or 8 years ago.When they were thru blooming I planted them in the back yard.
Next on the list is my blueberry bushes. I planted them in 1994 and 95. I usually have enough for all the sisters and fill my freezer up too.I also share with a few friends.One year I picked till I got tired,then let the birds finish rest.My freezer couldn't hold anymore and no one wanted to pick them.(that was before they went up to $2.99 a quart).I lost one of my bushes and replaced it last fall, it looks like a baby beside the other ones..LOL. I also noticed the fig tree is budding out.I hope it doesn't get frost-bite....it won't hurt the blueberries.
I'm still fighting the cold thats going around..but so is everyone else...it does like to linger.I hope everyone is having a good week....This waitress is tired and I'm going to look for a real hot bath...to soak my feet in ya know?LOL
Have a good week and enjoy the pictures...I think spring fever is getting to everyone.
