Yesterday while working around the yard I noticed this little guy had stuck its purple nose out of the ground. It's a Bleeding Heart that my little sister planted as house warming gift for me 36 years ago this summer. Last year is was pretty scraggly and I was worried if it would make it through another winter. I'll try a little miracle-gro on it this year, and I've put a tupperware "green house" over it for the overnight. For me it is has always been a welcome sign of spring. What, if any, little thing says spring is on it's way to you??
