I've even brought the border dahlias out of their winter hibernation to begin sprouting before going out.
And tomatoes - the little guys I've started from seeds. The bigger ones were gifted to me by Barbara, a New York girlfriend and Master Gardener with a backyard greenhouse. I'll tend them indoors until I can put one or two in big pots on the back deck; the rest go to the community garden where we'll plant the majority of veggies this summer.
The best news of the day, though, is that we spotted a hummingbird at the feeders yesterday around five o'clock.
It may be too chilly for a dip in the pool, but apparently not too chilly for a dip in the sugar water. I'm thrilled to see our little friends move in for the season.
