I saw my first bumblebee of spring today. 🙂 I also saw the season’s first mosquito, at least the first one to try to bite me! Either way, spring is padding its way in through the muck and I couldn’t be happier to see it. I saw a couple tiny leaves of my huchera plants (coral bells) coming back, so something beneath the sycamore survived the winter. It looks like my digitalis (foxgloves) in that area may have all died. We’ll see, though; maybe they’ll surprise me and come back after all. I hope the ones by our patio bed do make a return; they were so pretty last summer. I’m putting together some pictures of the garden. Be watching!
