Friday Yardening

Today I raked the leaves off the wildflower garden.  In the process, I discovered some bulbs that I'd forgotten about.  Some are blooming in pale blue, possibly striped squills.  The others look like grape hyacinths but haven't opened yet.  A lot of the other plants are sprouting too: comfrey, echinacea, yellow coneflower, some of the wild grasses.

Crocus are done blooming.  Gold currants have buds on them.  Raspberry canes are leafing out.
