A-sproutin'


My purple hyacinths are finally coming out of the cold, muddy winter ground. They are usually my personal harbingers of spring, so when I see them start to peek out I know winter's almost over. Next come my neighbor's pink tulips, then our cherry blossom tree, and by the time the blossoms turn pink and drop to the ground like snow, the weather has turned balmy for good.
