Seeing Spring Growth

Spring arrived here in SE KS a long while before the calendar said it was time.  We’ve had 80 degree temps, a few spring storms, and have had to mow the yard two or three times now. 

Part of the weather changing is the emergence of our garden toads.  🙂  We found this little guy hiding amongst the dragon’s breath sedum.

This was taken a week ago, and this clump has grown by 1/3 of what it was.  The lilies beside it have taken off, and the volunteer sunflower near it has grown tremendously.  The tire is a home for seeds of oregano, which haven’t popped up yet.
This rose is on it’s second bloom since Valentine’s Day!  It’s loving the spring weather!
As of today, it has 9 new buds on it, and has expanded another few inches!
Hubby’s lettuce has started sprouting, as have the sunflowers (purposefully planted, not the volunteers), spearmint, and I think I saw a single seedling of sweet basil.  Hubby has planted tomatoes and brussel sprouts, and they’re doing nicely–one tomato plant has a little yellow bloom already! 
I love this time of year, when the Lord lets things turn green and blossom, when the weather warms up and I can take the kids outside and enjoy the fresh air! 
What are your plans for this spring?

We cherish your thoughts!
