spring is springing!

well this was a nice surprise!

beautiful weather on the weekend. rooting around the shelves by the back door, i found this old pot of mini-daffs which i'd tucked out of the way last spring. i used to always chop the leaves off and set the bulbs to dry, and then throw out the dessicated husks a year later when i accepted defeat, but this time i decided to leave the tops on, as suggested by ontario today's ed lawrence.

look lovely, don't they?

but when you peer inside...

and trim away the dead stuff... voila!

so i took my similarly decrepit front porch planter...

and planted.

of course, on the radio they just said we'd have snow on wednesday, but what's springtime for if not hopefulness?
