Tuesday Yardening

Today I trimmed grass from around the row of hedge plants along the western edge of the savanna.  I think most of them survived; certainly a couple of the red-twig dogwoods have.  Some look dead, but may be dormant.

Many of my spring flowers are already showing sprouts.  The earliest -- some snow crocus and snowbells -- were up in January.  Now I can see those, grape hyacinths, iris, and naked ladies.  Also there was a fully active housefly on the birdfeeder when I went out to feed the birds.  0_o  The mild winter will mean a buggy, weedy summer.
