Spring is peeking around the corner

I'm noticing on my morning walks and in my garden that, even in the 3rd week of January, Spring is poking her little head up above the cold dirt.

The Salmon berries are blooming!  I'm hoping I can beat the birds and the County road crew to the berries this year.

Daffodils are popping up everywhere and all the plum trees, including ours, are going into full bloom.
My apple tree is starting to bud out and it desperately needs a good pruning.  I hope we get another awesome yield in the fall.  My big chore in the garden now, is to get it all cleaned up and ready for the spring, and to decide what I'm going to grow this year and get some seeds ordered.  I'm itching to garden!
