The Colors of Early Spring

The Colors of Early Spring

After months upon months of grey and brown tones, I’m happy to see the colors start coming to life.  Spring brings sweet smells of hyacinths and pansy.hyacinth

I also start seeds on the radiator and then they live in the closet under lights for about 6 weeks or more.  I’ve just started introducing them to outdoors for a few hours each day to get them ready for transplanting.  Can’t wait.
