Paw Prints and Gardens


Bucky and I took a walk around the yard, looking for little signs of spring. We found some, but they were sparse and tiny. There are shoots of green here and there; bits of crocus, daffodil, and tulip leaves just poking their way through the damp, moist earth. Little leaves of iris and mums are starting to appear as well, but the lavender and rose bushes look bleak and withered yet by winter's cold. Signs of spring are slowly becoming apparent, but it will be weeks before new leaves on trees and green on lawn start showing that spring is seriously here. In the meantime, Bucky paw prints add charm and grace with shoots of green to garden beds.
