It's like all these plants have had a little bit too much sugar because the blooming going on in the last couple days can only be described as HyPeRacTiVe. See this new tulip?
One day later, it's already wiped out.
I remember I used to sit near a large window at work that faced a hillside across the street with forsythia growing at the top. Once forsythia decides to bloom, forsythia does it fast. Sitting across from it on that one certain day in spring was pretty darn nice. You could check on it every hour or two and watch the hillside transform from some tentative yellow in the morning to a full hill of crazy at the end of the day. The plants this year are blooming at forsythia speed. Every 8 hour shift has something new making a big arm waving appearance. All of my daffodils are in bloom (as are my early tulips) and some of the trees have that bright baby green glow when their flowers start to bloom. Soooo pretty. And of course there is SUN and when it's not raining, a bright blue sky!!!! I just love it.
I find it hard to believe there is anyone out there who does not share this enthusiasm for spring but they're out there...
