I took my camera, with macro lens, outdoors with me on Saturday. Auggie joined me.
The peonies are sprouting upward with speed. The taller shoot here is about 5″ tall. Their emergence from slumber is a week or two early, and in another two months or so they will burst forth in giant pink blooms.
Last Saturday I posted pictures of the beginning of Spring showing up in my yard.
After the yard work yesterday, I took more picture. The peonies are definitely growing, and of course the daffodils are in furious stretch season right now. The tulips have become more active. And the hydrangeas are showing signs of life in their first year in the ground. That makes me very happy.
