Happy Spring!

Today is the first day of Spring. What comes to mind when I think of Spring is pastel colors, garden beds in full bloom, warmer sunny days and lots of time for gardening. Well this is what Spring looks like in Denver......just plain ugly. It has been ugly like this since the third week in October. I thought winter was a 3 month season. Boy was I fooled. There are still no leaves on the trees. Everything is brown, grey or black. Sometimes there is beautiful blue sky but not today.
But wait, is that a little hope I see? A first crocus pushing up through the ugly brown dirt? And there is a hyacinth pushing up too. Will it be white or purple? Well Spring will be here soon but today it is only a calendar event.
