Bring on the April Showers

Snow, snow, go away...
The yard on March 28:


The yard today, on a cloudy and wet day:

The landscape has changed significantly in the past three days. The snow has been replaced by mud and rain. The lake ice is now topped with blue puddles for the first time this year. The snowmobiles may stop soon, or risk getting soaked.
First growth in rock garden, the tips of Tulipa humilis:

You must have great stamina to wait out Spring like this!

Congratulations - spring has finally made her way to your doorstep. Yay!

(I have no signs of growth yet so am envying your eager tulips!)

Don't worry Garden Ms. S, the tulip bits were the ONLY signs of life in the otherwise brown yard. I had to look hard to find them.
