I have been waiting many months for some green to come sprouting out of the dirt in front of my house. I got really nervous when I saw daffodils growing in other yards and not mine. I had pretty much given up, not to mention the snow that was still somehow covering my "garden."
Then I saw two or three heads peeking their way through the mud a couple of weeks ago, where I planted the tulips. I was so excited, although sad that I wouldn't have any daffodils.
Today I counted almost seventy tulip plants. They are all 1-2 inches tall, but they just can't grow fast enough for me. I even found four daffodils coming through. I guess I might get some daffodils after all. I can't wait to see my front yard full of blossoming flowers in a few weeks!
