I give up: spring makes me happy

And I have been trying so hard to avoid one of those “birds are chirping, flowers are peeping out” posts about how wonderful everything is now winter is over.

However, this is becoming impossible, because—global warming, I presume?—we are having an halfway decent early spring. I’m seeing tulips already, not to mention the ubiquitous daffodils; I could actually pick a small bouquet from my crappy garden for Easter. Sorry, Polly, meant to bring it over, but I decided to keep it.

Blooming on the GWI property: hyacinths, hellebores (see earlier post), tulip turkestanica, tulip humulis, violets, daffodils, snowdrops, and scilla. And it looks like the rhododendron will finally perform.

Here’s the public daffodil planting I most admire (around a rare urban windmill):
