Because it was a house, of course there are tough perennials left: iris, daylilies, and daffodils. I wanted to check on the daffodils. Good news. They're not an early variety, and the woods have grown up so they're not in full sun, but they're at least six inches above ground, and the early ones at my old house in full sun were that high only two weeks ago. Things will be blooming around here soon.

I walked down to the creek this afternoon (not quite all the way, because the last bit is very steep, and my joints didn't want to tackle the way back up) past the old house. I think it's interesting that I had started calling the foundations of the old house and most of the root cellar "the old house" not "the old house site" before I heard some of the people who've lived in this area call it "the old house." It has quite a strong presence.
