But in about a week, it'll be a big yellow Kraken beside the house.
The daffodils, on the other hand, are not at all shy about proclaiming their presence:
Cheerful, aren't they?
I shot those yesterday afternoon. Today, it's raining, which is all to the good - we are still in a massive deficit and rain will not only help fill that, it'll bring out more flowers. Of course we'll likely have cold snap sometime before April (we do every year), so I won't actually plant anything until then. Still, once the rain is gone, perhaps Bird and I will go out and pull weeds and make the ground ready for whatever we put in...if anything, because we still can't water. Sigh.
When other things start to bloom, I'll post more pics - it's always fun to watch the buds burst - I swear, some days it ought to sound like popcorn, it happens so quickly and profusely!
