It Sprung!


We had a lovely 'first day of spring' yesterday - for Vancouver, it was right on schedule - birds chirping, squirrels running around, green blades of bulbs poking from the ground, fuzzy pods on trees like the magnolia, and tiny yellow flowers starting to emerge from the forsythia.

And then as I peruse friend's blogs and other photos - I see there is still snow on the ground in many parts of Canada and the US and I'm sure there are many people less than thrilled that the calendar says it's spring when it doesn't feel that way outside. Which group are you in?

I am definitely ready for spring and mentally ready for gardening this year. Over the winter I've been learning about 'square foot gardening' and I think I'll give that a try. I also want to grow more vegetables and herbs and other edibles. Any recommendations?
