Okay, getting waaaayyyy ahead of the game with this, but I was just so excited to see these when the snow melted off my garden bed!
I actually yelled “SPROUTS!!!!” Dork.
The iris rhizomes appear to have survived the winter:
Need to do some garden bed clean up once it dries out a bit more and is not so squishy. It will be a while before the shade garden shows its face,though:
There was one bulb that probably got pulled up by a squirrel last fall. It is sprouting on its own.
The bulb is a little squishy, so I brought it inside and stuck it in some nutrient soil and will see what happens.
Grow little sprouts!
Another sign of spring are all the ice cream shops opening up for the season.
This is the one 1/3 mile from our house:
So, despite that fact that it was spitting rain and in the mid 40s, John and I walked down for inauguration 😀
Kiddie cone in peanut butter! We walked home and ate these in warmth. Too cold to sit outside!
It’s supposed to be 51 and sunny on Saturday. We will be biking 😀
