There was a brief moment that almost resembled sunshine this afternoon so I rushed outside to take a picture of the lovely white and purple crocuses (crocusi?) blooming in my yard. After the torrential rains we've been having, I'll take every reminder of spring I can get.
In the next few weeks, the daffodils and tulips I planted in the fall will also be blooming. There are a few buds on the hydrangea bushes and the magnolia tree, and every where I go around the neighborhood, the cherry blossoms are starting to bloom in full force. Spring is almost here!
