Signs of Spring

I've repotted my snapdragons today into peat pots. They have their first set of true leaves, but out of 25 plants only 12 came up and 2 were on top of others so I had to root them out. So I have 10 left... I'm hoping repotting made a difference and those 10 I have left can thrive now. I had started them all in the same pot.

My lotus has even moved up to the surface more around 2pm I noticed the tip leaving the water. I even added a tiny bit more warm water to the container after I took the picture this morning. I am planning on photoing it again this evening. Truly, I think it is possible I may have my first leave develop by this weekend.

Though I am going through this planting and seeding and feeding and lighting and watering I am feeling like Spring will never come! It feels like January is just ENDLESS!!! Well, mother nature gave me a bit of warmth today by showing me that spring is coming, and probably early here. I found not 1, but 12 of my tulip bulbs sprouting. I planted 30+ to start with in November... so I am sure to find more as I search the yard later this week.
