Weekend in the Back Yard
There is a lot of work in backyards during the Spring. Actually, there is a lot of work in our backyard for the entirety of the year - there may be more expectation associated with late Winter and early Spring chores. The rewards are sometimes abundant without a long wait. Sometimes the anticipation is not the result of work - some of our plants voluntarily show up year after year (not always in the spot we might have chosen). There is a lot of promise and a lot of early delivery from some of the cooler weather plants.
Some of my early favorites include the pink Oxalis and yellow mustard flowers - and these are volunteers! We also have some Louisiana Iris!
