Spring has sprung - I think

March 23.  The calendar says spring is here.  But the weather isn't sure it wants to commit to spring yet.  We have days here and there which are pleasant but then late winter grips us again - a foot of snow less than one week ago.  Perhaps a dusting in a few days, perhaps not.  The weatherman can't make up his mind either.

In my backyard I see the tulip shoots trying to see sunlight.  My Guy Friday has already mulched my flower garden and pruned the roses and lavender.  But I think we are still a good three weeks away from any flowerbuds that didn't come from a greenhouse.

So, in an effort to coax spring out of hiding, here are some photos from springs past.  Many of them were taken in past Aprils, so there is hope for us yet!
