Today it was very warm and sunny, well into the 70's. Still a little nippy in the shade but for the most part, pleasant.
I counted all the tulips that are coming up and there are 62! Hubby reminded me that in total we have more than that because we have some planted in other places and some that have already bloomed. So, total we probably have about 100 tulips here.
Added some more fairy lights along the walkway (they are SO appreciative, you know). Looks like fairyland at night out there. We use only solar lights, so it's nice to know we are helping the environment.
Daylight Savings Time in the United States begins Sunday, March 11 at 2:00 a.m. and ends Sunday, November 4 at 2:00 a.m., except in Arizona and Hawaii.
Daylight Savings Time is the practice of advancing clocks so that the evenings have more daylight and mornings have less. Though first mentioned by Benjamin Franklin in 1784, the modern idea of daylight savings was first proposed in 1895 by New Zealander George Vernon Hudson and first implemented during WW1, and in the United States in 1918. So, remember, Spring forward, fall back...
