Spring - Three Weeks Away!
Submitted by Pam on Mon, 03/02/2009 - 15:59
It still feels like winter around here (snow yesterday) and my winter village is still sitting out, but I know spring is right around the corner because...
My pussywillows are beginning to pop out of their shells...
...And flower buds on my ornamental plum trees are beginning to swell just a tiny bit.
Go outside and look around for branches from flowering trees or bushes that you can bring into your nice warm home.
Within two days, the tight little buds will begin to swell, and within four or five days they will be almost ready to pop open!
Morning of the 6th day! First blossom opens at 7:00 am.
And look at how many popped by noon!
What are you waiting for? Go cut a few branches and bring them inside. Enjoy the show!
