something's coming!

Have you noticed the change in the days lately? They're getting longer! Though I know this starts happening after December 21st, it's hard to actually notice until those lengthened hours of daylight start coinciding with landmark times of day like 7:00 a.m. when I'm barely up and 5:00 p.m. when we eat dinner. We're living in natural daylight again. Oh joy!!

We saw it last week on our walk to Elgin Park too. See this drab winterish scene. Nothing spring-like about it, right?

But wait. Look more closely at that green below the tree. That's no patch of winter-weary grass. It's snowdrops -- hundreds of them!

My garden is starting to respond to spring's call as well. Here is peony bud,

some spears of daffodil

and I'm not even sure what these are -- tulips maybe (although they look an awful lot like hosta)? We'll find out soon!
