I am so excited to be seeing some flowers! We have crocus blooming and tulips and daffodils are on their way! These pansies pictured above were recently purchased and planted in a basket to put on our front porch. For the past 5 years, a pair of house finches have built their nest in a hanging basket on our front porch. Last week, the birds started coming around again, so we needed to find a basket of something hardy to withstand very chilly night temps in our neck of the woods. Pansies fit the bill and I am so happy to have flowers in the house!

What are some of your favorite signs of spring?
