This is for you, Becky!

Signs of green and life in the garden. These are the heirloom iris sent to me last fall from Becky of Needles of Iron fame. No guarantees of blooms this first year, but they seem to all have survived their first winter in my garden.

Extreme closeup of some grape hyacinth. No matter what I do, I can't get rid of them, and they just keep multiplying all over. It is the first real color each year, but what a mess in about a month as I try to plant my annuals in the same beds.

Looks like the honey bee appreciates the color as well!

And to think I just about deleted all the backlogged posts in Reader today! I was so behind with starting the new job this week...but didn't. I decided to pick and choose a few of my faithful, and look what I found! Thanks for sharing, Liz.
