What a difference a day (or two) makes

I was out of town for a couple of days at the end of the week.  When I returned, the first thing I did was to walk around the yard to see the changes that occur almost overnight. My sister put it so well when she wrote in her blog, "Tarmama Wanderings",
 "At this time of year we are watching and waiting and believing as we begin to see the hope of new life awakening as the days grow warmer and the light increases."
Much is awakening in my garden!  The first thing I noticed was the Bradford Pear.


The forsythia is nearly in full bloom.
The dogwoods and the azaleas are budding.


And I love these daffodils!

While I was away, the dill seeds sprouted and the zinnia seedlings grew a couple of inches.  
While all of this was happening at home, I was watching the birds outside my father's window.

Lovely signs that your garden is indeed awakening ... I really like your daffodil.

Ginny, I hope you had a nice visit with your dad. I think i can still find a seed pod for my moon flower if you still want it.
