A hint of spring in February

four blooming hyacinths, forced bulbs

I’m one of the last people to complain about winter. Minnesota has four seasons, and I enjoy every one of them.

Still, it’s fun to dream about the time just two short months from now when the snow will (most likely) be gone and the first flowers will be poking out of the ground.

These hyacinth bulbs — a Christmas gift from my mom — make me antsy to start planting seeds indoors for our 2014 garden, though it’s much too early for that. I’ll need to be content to study our gardening books for now.
