OK since it's finally gonna start bein spring like, I thought I'd start postin some a the growth happenin at this point.

Bryan hasn't been over in 10 days and I believe he'll find that there's been quite a lotta growth since last he saw the yard.

Fist, the early tulip bed...

I remember tulips. Back before the deer moved into town they used to grow, now the deer bite the heads off like a lolly pop.

Now in the back yard, there are these double bloom daffies that I hope will be bloomin within a week (view north, near the house)

This was the impromptu flower bed Bryan 'created' 'bout 4 years ago, when we had too many plants still in pots, not knowin where we were gonna put em. - they took real nicely in spite a the real bad quality a the dirt!

Finally, the area that most needs cleaning up this year - so full a grasses, is the area near the sidewalk on the south side of the property, front yard. Iris have multiplied like crazy - they're growing outta the flower bed into the grass areas (the borders will sure help things seperated!)

Wow, I hope my Iris from Lightnin' Flatts will multiply like that. It is doing well, my neighbors have some blooing already.
