Two weeks ago, there was this. The crocus were starting to bloom, and this was looking like a tiny blue pineapple.
And now the tiny blue pineapple is becomming a flower, a grape hyacinth even. It's still pretty tiny, but it's there!
On March 15th, the crocus were looking promising, and the daffodils were just starting to come out of the ground.
And today, the daffodil blooms are opened up! It's really looking like spring!
I did a bunch of grading yesterday, and I'm going to do a smaller bunch today, to finish up the second pile, and then I'm going away for a couple days. For once, I procrastinated a bit less than I could have, and I'm feeling a lighter load as a result.
Hurray for spring!
