Hyacinth.

Snowbell.

Daffodil.

Celestial.

Quince.

Narcissus.

(Or paperwhite.)

These are a few of our favorite things.

And they’re blooming.

Thanks to 88 degrees.

And more is on the way.

Flowers, that is.

In spite of frost predicted.

Bluebonnets leafing up and out.

Promises of blooms to come.

Ornamental cherry sitting pretty.

Preparing the pathway to Spring.

Busy birds all about.

Cedar waxwings flying in.

And out.

A most remarkable bird.

They stop for water.

Then hit the road.

Or sky, to be exact.

Butterflies out and around.

Fluttering bits of black on pink quince.

Soon the snakes will be coming out.

Soon the time will change.

Soon Spring will have officially sprung.

The list grows like a taproot.

Growing longer each day.

Prune this.

Trim that.

Cut those back.

Plow that up.

Pull that down.

Haul that off.

Bury that.

Burn this.

Rake here.

Dig there.

Get some compost.

Get some soil.

Get some plants.

Get to Mason Garden Market.

And The Green House.

And get busy.

That’s Mason.
