Sometimes, though, you can be pleasantly surprised. With spring right around the corner, our new yard is sprouting all kinds of surprises.
Daffodils are popping up everywhere. So many of them! I just adore daffodils. Besides being a harbinger of spring, is there a more cheery flower?
Clusters of Paperwhites at the base of a big oak tree. So pretty in the dappled sunlight.
Violets! I haven't seen these since I left New England a loooooooong time ago.
This plant appears to be growing out of the side of a dead log, but the roots are actually in the ground. I've no idea what it is, and there is only one.
I don't know what this is either, but the vibrancy of the pink and yellow is amazing.
