Well, I finally got a good part of the front yard cleaned up. What a mess that was! I still have some work left to do, but it looks tons better, and now I can actually see the things that are blooming out the window when I'm washin' dishes. The only saving grace about that thankless chore.
Here's what's happenin' in my dirt:
Several clumps of the mini daffodils are bloomin' their little hearts out.
Still just one bunch of the standards.
My wagon, that The Dad rescued from the dumpster at work several years ago, is showing signs of life.
The marsh marigolds are everywhere, as usual.
They're so pretty when they bloom, but man oh man do they spread like wildfire.
I'll spend a good portion of time ripping them all out next month.
At least they're easy to pull.
The weigela is just sticks this early, but I still think it's pretty.
Anyone wanna remind me what the name of this is?
I'll never remember.
Bright, strikingly blue flowers on a not-so-pretty, gangly plant.
Same with the next one, Snowflake?
It's one of my favorite bulbs ever.
No blooms yet, though.
My lone columbine is up.
I need more, they're so pretty.
The daphne is in full bloom.
And all the happy primroses.
The heather is goin' for it right now, too.
The hellebore my mom gave me a piece of a couple years ago is finally blooming.
So dang pretty.
And last, the very first flowers are comin' on the lungwort.
So that's what's goin' on in my front yard this week.
