Here they are, all standing at attention, the first signs of spring in the yard.
This is why my back hurts-and also why I skipped a day in the studio. The mercury rose past 40 degrees, even reaching 50 in the late afternoon. SO, out came the rake and I cleaned out last fall's muddy leaves from the big perennial bed behind the house. It doesn't look like much now, but there promises to be loads of color in the coming weeks. Stay tuned.
