The weather here in upstate NY was so nice yesterday - bright sun and in the 50s. Although I had much to do inside, and as tempting as it was to just leave my butt on one of my not-so- modern sofas, I felt I just had to get outside and get a breath of fresh air and feel some sunshine on my face. Got a bit of a case of cabin fever goin' on here. So I walked around for a bit, my only intention to find some signs of spring, and soak up some sunshine. I spotted this sign of spring - one of my irises poking through. I have a ton of irises though...the reason I only noticed just this one is because, well, don't you see all that mess surrounding my sprout? Brown-thumb-me never cleared out the garden from last summer so there was a ton of dead plant debris all over. I started feeling bad about my irises, all trapped beneath last summer's plant carcasses. So....
Here are the before and after pics:
Well, better late than never, eh?
See all the iris sprouts that were hiding under there??
Go irises! Woot!
