My black iris are about to bloom. They're still furled but showing lots of color in the buds now. :D Peonies have buds. Raspberries are blooming. Mulberries have small green fruit.
EDIT 5-17-18: I finished mulching the newly planted grass.
I saw an indigo bunting on the hopper feeder, which currently has large mix with sunflower seeds and peanuts. I would've thought he'd go for the thistle sock that the goldfinches have been all over, but whatever.
