First Signs of Spring

A mere month ago there were several feet of snow on the ground, but recently the days have grown mild and moderate and plenty of plants are beginning to "wake up" from their long slumber. I divided 2 large clumps of daylilies today, and a quick survey of the property turned up daffodils, tulips, irises and peonies sending up shoots, as well as my Pieris Japonicas all set to burst into bloom. Surprisingly, the Camellia shrubs have a couple of flowers that have opened, and I suspect that my Bradford Pear will break out into bloom within the next 2-3 weeks. It's all very exciting, and I'm gearing up for an amazing 2010 Garden Season!
