The snow is melting!

Ahhh! I can smell the earth again.
The snow is melting and I can see patches of garden peeking out. The leaves on the aubritia are still green after a winter under cover.
I am now in a hurry to prune my fruit trees before the sap really gets running. I always bring in some of the cuttings and put them in vases all over my house so I will have greenery and blossoms before the trees outside begin to leaf out.
My forsythia bushes are big enough this year that I can steel a few branches for some lovely sun yellow flowers in my home. Welcome spring!
