Usually I get very exited about Spring approaching, this year it did sneak up on me.
Almost over night all the lenten rose (hellebores) are in full swing and the daffodils are right behind.
The usual front runner 'Arnold's Promise' hazel has not even opened it's blossoms and the 'Jane' magnolia, normally cautious about opening up too soon is running ahead this year.
So maybe it's just time to surrender and let nature do it's thing. Since moving to the South in 1984, I have seen every possible Winter to Spring transition, so this one does not come as a surprise.
Let's enjoy it!
Weather looks good, see you tomorrow at the Cooper Young Community Farmers Market 9-1.
Come get your 'Valentine' this Saturday 9-1 at the Cooper Young Community Market
