Signs of spring
The leaves are bursting forth out in the country too. This photo was taken a few days ago. Yesterday there was the slightest green haze on the trees, but today, they are that bright spring green. So pretty!
The tulips are in full bloom today, but yesterday they were just starting to open. The sunny daffodils have been happily blooming for a few days now.
These are some of the Japanese Indigo seeds that I started early this year, in hopes of getting them to seed. I transplanted the seedlings into several larger pots. This one is doing the best. You can see that the leaves already have a bluish cast to them, so they are developing pigment. I need to transplant them again, into a larger pot which will go outside, but there is still too much of a frost risk to do so yet. They are doing much better than I'd expected, so this is making me very happy.
