I love the four seasons! It is one of the reasons why I love Indiana so much. And just like I get really excited about the snowfalls and seeing white, I get equally excited about the snow melting and seeing signs of spring.
As I walk outside there is still a bit of the white stuff hanging out in shady areas.
I look across the little run of snow and see the bird feeders that have been active with robins, blue jays and cardinals.
My mucks have mud on them instead of slush which is a great thing! Mud season is here!
And things are budding and blooming. My Japanese Cherry Tree is budding.
The daylillies and tulips are popping up; I was so surprised to see these after the melt! Can you see them in there?
Walking around to the front of the house, the weather is such that we can FINALLY get our last dormer sided. We were so happy to see our “boys” (as we affectionately call them) today! I know the temps are warming up when they visit!
In the pole barn Ms. Tupelo is getting a new tire for the spring.
My table has my heat mat and planting supplies ready for this afternoon! Getting dirty in the pole barn while blasting favorite tunes is my TRUE sign of spring. This afternoon awaits…
My garden table is done and will be hauled outside to the lean to this afternoon! Oh my goodness!!!! It’s a beauty!
And we can’t forget our buzzing friends. Our bees in the Trudeau hive have been buzzing around. We are so excited to see them. This is a critical time for the bees as we don’t have nectar flow yet so we will be keeping close tabs on them and supplementing with sugar water and pollen patties right now.
What are the signs of spring in your area? What speaks spring to you?
Happy Unleashing Spring!
