Spring Has Sprung!

I’ve always wondered about where the phrase, “Spring has sprung!” came from. After the last week, I think I know. I had despaired that any of the spring flowers in our yard would ever show up. It’s amazing what a little sun, some rain and warm temperatures can do! Plants that looked absolutely dead a week ago are green and thriving, throwing up shoots and flowers. So I just want to share a few photos of some of what’s going on in our yard.Spring has sprung indeed!
