I guess since winter was mostly MIA I shouldn't be overly surprised with what I noticed in my front yard this morning. Yup, green things are sprouting! I don't think I have ever seen green things this early in Vermont. It feels like I am living in Maryland, where I grew up.
The only down side is that last fall, when our yard was full of leaves, I was a brand new mom and Shawn was a brand new dad. We were getting used to our new roles rather than worrying about yard work. Now it's still waiting for us as things spring back to life.
I am looking forward to spending some time outside in the sunshine cleaning up last season's mess. A little Vitamin D from the sunshine is always good for the soul!
