I'll be honest, I haven't had much time to be out in the yard. I think that I raked all of the leaves that collected at the end of Autumn, but that is all I have had time for. Even though I haven't had time to work in it, occasionally there is a surprise there waiting for me, beckoning me to get my hands in the soil.
I love perennials. They give me something to look forward to every year. Although they don't last very long, they are very strong and beautiful.
This was a lovely thing to see in my garden, welcoming me home from the weekend.
"Hello. Are you as cheerful as I am?" he asks.
"Why, yes. I am."
