Today is Ground Hog’s Day and Punxsutawney Phil forecasted?.. 6 more weeks of winter.

Despite Phil’s prediction, the whipping winds and lack of sunshine, my early Spring garden is already starting to show small signs of life. During the last two weeks, my ears thawed to the lone bird singing soulful Spring songs, calling the plants to awaken and thrive.

My crocuses have pushed through the soil and mulch.

Where something seemed to dig, I saw my daffodils were starting to wake up from their cold winter’s nap.

These small flecks of green, across the dreary  winter landscape, renew my energy as they remind me that life is still all around. This is why Spring is my favorite season.

What early signs of Spring have brightened your blustery winter?
