If you have "no place to go," come here!

In the garden: Come ON!

OK, spring is here. Because look! I've got an entire forsythia bush with four (4) blossoms on it! (To be fair, this is in the sunniest spot.) Come on!

And then there's the clover seed:

It's been three days and the seeds haven't germinated. Come on! (To be fair, it's been cool this week; but by next week we should be in the sixties. I hope it's the temperature, because it it isn't, it means the bag of clover seed I left out in the barn over the winter has gone bad in some way.)

And then there are the violets, which are really invasive, even though when fully flowered they look like butter wouldn't melt in their mouths, if they had mouths, and butter:

I had never thought of their pretty purple and white flowers growing out of such clumpy scapes (?), like hostas do (?), but that's what it looks like. Perhaps those massive perennial underground structures are the secret of their invasive success!
