As the spring month roles in there's still a lot of snow on the ground.
It'll probably be gone by this time next week (there's rain predicted for next weekend) but it sure feels like winter.
There are a few spring-like things going on though. One of my favorite harbingers of spring is the spinach in my cold frame staring to grow with the higher sun.
A couple of other plants have brightened my gloomy, end of winter spirits. One is a Bird of Paradise plant. I have three and one is a regular late winter bloomer. It has bloomed in January in the past, but I think it was too cloudy this year. It was waiting for a little more sun.
While I was watering I spotted this little barrel cactus with a beautiful crown of flowers.
I guess everything is hoping for an early spring so we all can get outdoors more. I know I sure am.
