Once, everything was in order, I did a walk around the yard to see what surprises I could find. Here is what I found today.
Brush pile that needs to be cut and stacked.
Rhubarb! I can't wait to make Strawberry Rhubarb pie!
A Johnny Jump Up is coming back.
Chionodoxa, Glory of the Snow
Striped Squill, Puschkinia scilloides libanotic. These have naturalized throughout my yard. It's a great first flower for those early bird pollinators.
Opened blossoms of Striped Squill.
Old stump that I had picked off a curb years ago, has finally succumbed to nature.
This lilac bud looked like a little tree frog to me. Tell me you can't see it smile emoticon
Day lilies coming up.
Lungwort starting to grow.
I love Scilla (Siberian Squill). Once it takes hold, it will quickly spread out from the garden and into your lawn. Some old gardens by us look like a blue river pops up in their yards each Spring. The flowers are usually done about the same time that the yard needs mowing for the first time each year.
Scilla's flowers point downwards
I picked this one, and turned it over so you could see it.
