Spring Day

“Spring Day”, a copyrighted post, was written for my WordPress blog called Always Growing by Jan in Covington, Louisiana

Even though the weather has been warm and pleasant for the last month, we still look forward to the official start of spring, and the first full day of spring did not disappoint. Bright sunshine, a high of 80 degrees, and a light breeze made for a perfect day.

Just about everything in the garden has already returned from winter dormancy. There are only a few plants that haven’t awakened yet. The daffodils have now finished blooming, and the azaleas have started.

This weekend, I saw the first frog of the season, dear hubby saw our little black snake from last year today, and the first anole was sunning itself this afternoon.

 

 

Late this afternoon as I was walking around the garden, I saw the first hummingbird of the season. The first hummingbird on the first day of spring. Can’t ask for more.

    One of our neighbors said she saw a hummingbird, so out come the feeders! I still haven’t seen one this year yet. We have had lots of the little anoles…one of the dogs watches them and pounces— to no avail. fun to watch though.
