At last!


The daffodils are blooming at last. In the fall of 2008, I planted 55 pounds of daffodil bulbs. Every spring hereafter, they’ll pay me back. Notice how they all turn their little faces to the south.

The day lily shoots are growing fast. The deer don’t mess with daffodils, but they love to eat day lily shoots. I’ve been peppering the day lily shoots with dried blood (a fertilizer) in hopes that it will keep the deer away. So far so good. In the summer of 2008, I planted 300 day lily sets on the bank up the hill from my driveway, which is too steep to mow. I hated the work, but I love the payback.
