…produced Springtime surprises!
At the Emil Bach House, the legendary array of Tulips had begun to sprout!
Next door at the Cat’s Cradle Bed and Breakfast, more of the same!
Plus…the very first Crocus!
At the corner of Sheridan Road and Fargo Avenue, the Daffodils are standing proudly…won’t be long until they bloom!
Farther up Fargo Avenue, more Daffodils and Crocus!
But the best ‘gift’ of the day was my favorite early bloomer–the delicate, yet very hardy, Snowdrop!
Officially, Spring begins with the vernal equinox at 6:02 A.M. (CDT) on March 20, 2013 in the Northern Hemisphere.
