We found this Robin hopping around in the grass looking for bugs or worms to take home to the family. When we lived in the Northeast, seeing a Robin was often the first sign of Spring, but Robins winter here so we see lots of them even in the snowy months.
We decided to look down first and we found lots of green shoots pushing up.
Some flowers are already up and in bloom.
This Bleeding Heart makes me smile. I've actually tried to kill this plant several times and it keeps coming back. It's poisonous to dogs and when the pups were younger, they loved to chew on plants in the garden. I tried cutting it down and pulling it out, but it's still here. Fortunately, the dogs pay no attention to it anymore.
The Clematis are climbing up the trellis and will be flowering soon.
Do you see the Periwinkle flowers hiding under the leaves? These are growing under the porch and around the front steps.
Now Tsar and I looked up.
