It's late April, and the garden has begun to bloom. The daphne actually started blooming in late March, and its purple blooms are being pushed aside by the green leaves coming out now. The crocuses were up, and doing well, until we had three days of torrential rain over the weekend. It's been terribly dry, and we needed the rain, but it was the difference between using a sprinkler and using a bucket: the crocuses were flattened. The early-blooming daffodils, the little Jetfire ones, are on the verge of opening up; another day or two ought to do it, especially if we get more sun. (It's been another rainy day today, though.)

Right now, though, the glory of the garden is... well, glory-of-the-snow:

Spring. It's more than a week away from the vernal equinox, but there are signs... I saw half a dozen robins yesterday, and several more today... four deer on a neighbouring lawn... and these:

Daffodils

Tulips

New tulip bed

The top one is daffodil shoots, while the other two are tulip shoots. Hard to see, I know--if you go over to the original Flickr posting, you can see the notes I put in to mark them. :-)
