Spring couldn't wait.
It is here in full force, not just pretending.
And about a month early!

Not only snowdrops and crocus, but we have daffodils out.
And tulips trying with all their might.

My lily-of-the-valley have become like a family reunion,
new members appearing every year.

And the ferns. Oh, the ferns!
Like tiny serpents, they rise and uncurl into green giants.

The rule is, don't plant annuals before Mother's Day.
But with all this spring-ing, who can wait?
