Spring, as we know it up here, is progressing nicely. I've been hearing robins the past few mornings...such a beautiful sound! I don't realize just how silent the winter is until these songbirds come back! The snow is melting, although at times it seems to be going at an agonizingly slow rate. It may be a blessing in disguise though, since we have already had some flooding. We are expecting rain tonight and tomorrow, which won't help matters at all!
Meanwhile my little windowsill garden has begun to bloom! These little flowers make my heart sing every time I see them!
As I was taking those pictures, I looked up and saw this little "chippyhacky" out the window! We don't see too many of them, but I've seen this one three times today. I wonder what he is up to?
The seedling population is increasing rapidly. There is even more still on my desk and every available windowsill! So far I have peppers, onions, celery, pansies, heartsease, heliotrope, mint, anise, mugwort, oregano, sweet marjoram, lemon balm, horehound, castor beans, and I'm not sure what else! I'm planting St. John's wort, lovage, basil and wormwood today. Between these baby plants and Carina's 6 lively puppies (now 5 weeks old!), I'm keeping plenty busy!
The piles outside the greenhouse are slowly diminishing...I can almost see over them now!
I hope you are enjoying the spring weather wherever you're at, too!
