The irises are shooting up their green stalks along the side of the house and intermixed among them are a handful of muscari, or grape hyacinths. I had first spotted them last year. I didn't plant these little guys and I still don't have many in the yard, but they surprised me by popping up just when I least expected.
My next-door neighbors were digging in their backyard this weekend too, tearing down a fence line of honeysuckle (I'm a little sad about that) and putting in what looks like a vegetable boxed garden. Against the chainlink fence (so not really sure how that will work since chainlink doesn't hold in dirt). We'll see what happens.
Sad that I must go and sit inside for 8+ hours today. I'd much rather be playing in the dirt.
