Good-bye Winter

It would not be Spring (yes, I'm skipping the rest of winter and moving straight into Spring) without lots of snowdrops, narcissus and daffodils in my gardens. I have yet to plant my beloved snowdrops in SJC and although they were in their glory in Laguna, along with hundreds of daffodils, I didn't have my camera with me while I was there yesterday. I can't think of any flower that sends a clearer message to winter that it is time to move on than these easy, eager bulbs that naturalize so readily for us here in Southern California. I can't imagine my garden without them!

I'm starting to think, looking out at our orchard with fruit trees in bloom, and the daffodils just opening, that winter is mostly done for us. I agree, it feels like spring, with blooms like these, it's starting to look like it too!
