Spring is here! Actually I think Spring hit Toronto about two weeks early! It’s cool today, but for most of the last two weeks we were getting quite nice temperatures, like late spring like temps!
Just looking outside in my garden I’ve been seeing signs of spring for weeks. Most of my 60 or so rose plants have branches that are not only starting to green up but that are developing leave buds as are many of the shrubs, bushes and trees in my immediate area. The grass is starting to green as well. I wouldn’t be surprised if we have to cut our lawn in early April rather than the first lawn cutting being sometime in May as it usually is.
Just a few days ago I noticed that the chives were coming up in my garden as well as what I think might be iris and maybe even hyacinth leaves. Some of my Crocuses were blooming early this week too … a full week and a half to two weeks earlier than usual.
One other more human side of spring that I’ve noted is the arrival of communion invitations in the mail! LOL Yep, we have a nephew who’s getting ready for his first communion in May and we’ve already received an invitation. I’m sure they’ll be a few more similar invitations in the next month or so.
Have you been noticing signs of Spring in your area too?
