Signs of Spring

April has remained on the cool side. And that’s being nice…really, it has been cold. Like hard frosts and snow cold. Regardless of the unexpected weather, there are signs of spring everywhere in the garden.

I have no doubt that, in a month from now, the cold days of spring will be long over and long forgotten.
