Mar 10: first mint leaves, tulip leaves, and forsythia buds

Temperatures are in the 60s this week and the sun is finally out. I walk every day to see what flowers are in bloom. So far, I only see crocuses and snowdrops. Daffodil buds are fat, though, and they’ll open any day now. I bought a small flat to plant in our garden because the only early spring bulbs I have are the ones our mail carrier gave me — a crocus and a snowdrop.

I think by next week the daffodils will dot gardens with happy yellow, and maybe the forsythia will pop as well.
