Is It Spring Already?

ON a lovely sunny afternoon, we noticed tiny pieces of evidence of Spring. We went on a 'shoot hunt' in the garden to see how many new shoots we could see, and were amazed.

We found daffodils, tulips, day lilies, garlic/onions, aliums, hostas and some mystery bulbs where I couldn't remember what we'd planted.

A little brown bulb went to sleep in the ground
In his little brown nightie he slept very sound
Old Winter he roared and raged overhead
But the bulb didn't even turn over in bed
When Spring came laughing over the lea
With finger to lip, just as soft as can be
The little brown bulb, he lifted his head
Slipped out of his nightie and sprang out of bed!
