Welcome Spring!

It looks like the Iris beat the crocus this year in the race to bloom. The crocus are sprouted all over the yard, as are day lilies, daffodils, hyacinth, and sedum, but this hearty little Siberian iris took the honors. Since it is only 33 degrees out there at 8:30 AM, that takes some inner fortitude!

This starts a cascade of blooms in my yard that lasts until the fall frosts. I think we have something blooming all the time. Not a lot, but sufficient for enjoying most every morning while I blink awake with a cup of coffee.

Welcome spring!

UPDATE: It seems the crocus were only off by a day! This one will likely open up today. Woohoo! And Nala was enjoying smelling all the smells too.
