Spring has sprung

Day 4 of March and my first tulip bloomed. It's some kind of species tulip, short and small-petalled and destined to brighten that corner of the garden for years to come. Normally I can identify each and every flower I've planted in my garden (I've got records going back years), but I don't recall planting anything there, and the species tulips I bought this year all got put in the main part of my garden. Hmm. Welcome, bright stranger!

Meanwhile, the plum tree is in full bloom (sparrows keep landing on it and eating the flowers, so strange!) and the pink hyacinths (one of four colors) are blooming enthusiastically. The rock wall has miniature daffodils and fatty crocuses galore, and overall it just looks like spring! And the back yard ... well, it has some daffodils, but the season is still creeping upon it slowly. In another month or so I expect I'll see more tulips. It's a shame, really, when I was planning my purchases this year, I really thought I might not be around to see it bloom, and today the thought of me being out of this house by tulip season just gives me the giggles.
