spring progress

Things are coming up after being dormant all winter.
My peonies, for one.

Green on green on green doesn't make for a dramatic photograph, but the new peony leaves can be seen against the concrete square next to the downspout. 

My yard has many, many violets, both standard purple ones and pale lavender with dark violet veins. This is the first picking.

Here's the first and second daffodils that bloomed. I was relieved when my Thalia daffodils bloomed today, but I forgot to take any pictures. I'm a little worried that none of the solid yellows are showing yet. I dug things up in a great hurry, and the tenants had moved things around (mainly dividing iris I should have divided when I first moved in) but I'm sure I got some plain yellow ones. We'll see.
