Earlier in the week I noticed that the daffodils are starting to come up. I know it will be at least a month or more before they bloom, but it gives me hope that these grey cold days of winter will come to an end. It has been more than two weeks since we last saw the sun here in St. Louis. For those of us whose mood is so sunshine dependent, it makes it rather hard to stay happy and upbeat. Around 5:00 p.m. today we did see just a few peeks of sun through a couple of breaks in the clouds, but the weather forecast for the coming week is all clouds and snow flurries for the week. Yuk - it's even going to be cold again!
Look carefully at the picture and you'll find the little green leaves poking up through the mulch.
Thank you, Mother Nature. Spring will come again!
