April 1 Yard--Finally, some signs of life!

Things are very slowly getting underway in the yard.

Hooray! I was happy to see the crocuses emerge. They were so much later coming up than most of my neighbors' crocuses. I found a big clump of crocus bulbs on my sidewalk back in October (courtesy of a busy squirrel), which I didn't bother to replant, so when my neighbors had crocuses a few weeks ago while I had none, I assumed mine had all been dug up!

Spring is off to a slow start in general around here. We had one warm day in the middle of March, but other than that, it's been cold and gloomy, and winter starts to feel endless. The signs of life in the yard are giving me hope that it just might eventually get warm!
