Apparently this is the hip bird night club. See all the dance floor marks? (I have a birdfeeder right above this photo). It's always a surprise to wake up and see what has been going on at night.
And look what I found poking up out of the ground! Woo hoo! I found a whole bunch of yellow crocus, and can't wait to see their sunshine. They have bloomed on the exact same day - March 18 - for the past two years. I also found some mystery bulbs. Every year I manage to plant bulbs and forget to label them!
And if you squint very carefully, you can see some tiny alyssum sprouts in one of my wintersowing containers. Alyssum is always the first to sprout for me...I don't know if the alyssum I planted last year will re-seed for me or not, so I have some extras just in case.
I've been sitting at my dining room table planning in my head all the plants I'd like to move in this main area. I have a red-twigged dogwood I think I will move back here, and I do think I'll add some kind of evergreen. I'm still stumped on what to do in the Corner of Despair. (It's the corner that is directly right of the white birdhouse). Since it's between two windows, I don't want anything that will grow too tall. Right now I'm thinking of a bridal veil spirea or maybe a burning bush? Last season the Corner of Despair was the final resting place for all my weeds!
Thank you again to the Patient Gardener for hosting the End of the Month View!
