Springing to Life
I finally got around to cleaning out my garden and trimming my rose bushes. Yes, I know, I'm rather late, but the weather was finally beautiful enough for long enough to make me long for a bit of fresh air and my hands to smell like gardening gloves. Okay, maybe not the latter, but it was a beautiful day, the temperatures were around 60 degrees Farenheit (15.6 degrees Celsius/Centigrade), and the birds were all excited, too. So I grabbed my rake, the trash can, and my gloves, and went all out. I'm not quite done, but I made a sizable dent in how the yard looks. And...I found THESE! I have no idea what kind of plant they are, but they were hiding under a bunch of dead leaves from last fall. They're about as long as my pinky finger and as big around as my thumb. I was excited to find these little guys...anyone have any guesses as to what they are? If not, we'll find out as they continue to grow...and finally bloom! I'll post more pictures as the season progresses.
