Signs of Spring

Finally it seems that spring is arriving and one of my annual traditions is to look around our yard for signs that spring is here.
Pussy Willows

 I can hear the frogs singing and the birds twittering as they flirt and build their nests.
Rhubarb sprouts
 And although the garden is still to wet and cold to work, the rhubarb is showing signs of life. I try to start some of my flowers and garden plants ahead of time every year, but am a bit later than usual this year, due to the cold March and April we've had. These plants have finally been moved from inside the house out into the greenhouse, with a little extra heat provided for the cool nights and they are enjoying the additional sunshine they get there.
