Today we welcome spring.
But the bulb gardens in my house have been welcoming it for a few days.
I simply cannot resist tulips, daffodills, hyacinths (even though the latter wreak havoc with allergies!)
And so, for a week or two now, I have been picking up bulb gardens at the market, just to help push the arrival of spring a little more quickly!
There is something so inviting, so welcoming about spring.
Perhaps it is the return of green to yards and fields after a long spell of white.
Perhaps it is the warming temperatures that make being outside more pleasant.
Or it could be the anticipation of shocking colors to come -- red poppies, yellow forsythia, deep lavender and purple lilacs, hot-pink redbuds, the garish array of colors that zinnias and marigolds and snapdragons will soon bring to our gardens or the showy hydrangeas providing a white anchor for all that color.
Till then, I'm content to savor the tulips in my house!
