Oh Happy Day!

Today was an amazing, and unusually warm one!  We hit temps around 75 degrees!!  Not our typical February weather, but I'll take it!  I have been dreaming of spring lately, and today was such a teaser as I know it's not going to stick around for too long!  However, I did spot a definite sign of spring today.

Our bulbs are starting to shoot up!  Woohoo!  I love seeing that because I know that spring is within grasp now!  We've got bulbs all over the place.  Two falls ago I planted over 100 bulbs in different varieties in addition to the ones we already had.  We've got the most common hyacinth, daffodils, and many variations of tulips, as well as some others that I don't know the name of off the top of my head but they were pretty on the package so in the ground they went!

Now if only my dahlias would come up.  They're amazing!  They're "dinnerplate dahlias" which litterally means they are the size of a dinnerplate.  I still have a while to wait for those though, they don't start blooming til mid to late summer.  I'll leave you with a stunning picture so you can dream along with me ;)

Hope you have a great weekend!!
