Little signs of spring...

It's coming.  Slowly, almost agonizingly slowly, but there were definite little promises of spring this weekend at my house.   My son's girlfriend is a passionate gardener and has seeds started in my solarium:

And out in my garden my shrubs are shaking off the dreary winter and greening up...

The thoughtful housewarming gift from a friend eleven years ago just keeps on giving....I love the smell of hyacinths in the spring!

And a totally unexpected treat this orchid bloomed!  I am so excited...I faithfully watered it but never really expected it to bloom again.  And look--besides the one lovely bloom there are also three buds that promise even more beauty!
