Opening Up!

I guess we can say that spring has arrived.  The front yard was the place to be this morning, with birds feasting on bird seed, and in the flowerbed right in front of the house, the crocuses finally opened up this morning.  Now they just need some insects to do the pollinating...but it's still maybe a bit too cold for that.

One of these days - maybe this weekend - I'll have to get out there and pull out the weeds.  But it's good to see the yard slowly returning to life after a long winter.  Before long, the trees will be turning green, the wildflowers will start growing in, and the yard will be awash with color again.
