The End Of March

It was overcast and cool today. The crocuses and snow drops stayed closed and wet all day. Yesterday's all day rain seems to have caused many plants to come to life. Everywhere in the garden the perennials are beginning to show their spring growth. A careful look reveals new growth on the round lobed hepatica. I thought that the Dutchman's britches were gone. Something had dug them up last summer. Squirrels crossed my mind, but today I learned that Ed had accidentally unearthed them. Only when their new growth appeared did he come clean. All this new growth lends so much excitement to spring clean up and weeding.

Tomorrow is April 1, and if we're very lucky we'll have plenty of time for fooling around in the garden. We may even find the temporally lost Siberian squill since we can't remember exactly where we planted them.
