Today we are going to hunt down signs of spring. Since this is the first day of spring, there must be signs, so we will find them. We are being catered by the Cherrywood Coffee House in Austin to fuel our adventure. Our entertainment is The Loving Spoonful.

There’s the bus. Let’s go.
The first stop is the garden shop. Can’t spend a lot of time here, though. Impatiens anyone?
Next are the famous Texas bluebonnets. These are the first I’ve seen.
Good ole redbuds are in bloom.
The mountain laurels and popping out.
The verbena is making itself known.
The Carolina jasmine is just starting.
A spicebush swallowtail butterfly takes off from the hibiscus.
The strawberry plant is in bloom.
The roses are budding.
Talk about hibiscus? They are going crazy.
And finally, The Producer’s herb garden. (with tomato)
I hope you enjoyed the hunt for spring. I think we found signs that it is here in central Texas. I hope it is arriving in your neck of the woods too. Have a great week. Have some food and enjoy the music.
