Carol's been hosting GBBD for years over at May Dreams Garden, but for some reason I have never participated. I read, I look, I marvel, but I never post. But it's a crappy rainy day here in southern CT, and I actually have a hyacinth blooming that I picked up at the grocery store last week:
Did you notice how I placed it next to my little basket with gardening gloves and my Felco pruners (which desperately need to be cleaned -- someone must have put them away wet because they're a little rusty)? I've used the gloves and the pruners already, but that was before the 3 days of pouring rain. I can't wait to get outside later this week (sunny and 60 on Friday according to the weather today) and clean up the patio garden. I did get out before the rain and cut some forsythia branches to force inside. They didn't quite bloom yet, but soon:
So sick with spring fever!
