I love how spring can feel like a well choreographed dance. Just as the snow is starting to melt, I know I'll be able to find daffodil and tulip leaves poking out of the ground. Soon after that the first hosta leaves emerge. The daffodils bloom, the tulips bloom, and soon after that the lilacs take center stage and the alliums and iris follow. There's a bunch of other flowering plants that I haven't learned the names of yet that I appreciate watching too. I try to learn to recognize a few new plants every year. It's a fun game to play while walking the dogs.
Next up will be the peonies. Arguably the big spring show stopper. Unless you're my mom. Then day lilies take the prize, hands down, every year.
