These tulips are under a tree in the purple-and-white garden just south of the house.
Jonquils are peeking through the bark mulch under the maple tree near the south meadow.
While the lower buds on the maple are barely swelling, the top buds are farther along. I found this fallen twig. I love the hot pink and orange colors of the buds -- and they aren't even blooming yet. Soon there will be tiny red flowers.
The snow crocus are sprouting in the goddess garden. I haven't put the earth goddess back outside yet, though.
These daffodils are poking through the leaf mulch in the flowerbed near the driveway. I'll need to rake off the mulch before much longer. We've had a relatively warm week, which has sped up the growth, but it's supposed to get chilly again this coming week.
