The front of our house isn't quite so bare anymore! I love Spring in Portland. Things seem to just keep appearing without any effort on the part of people.
We have been watching the buds on these for awhile, wondering what they would be. They are finally showing a bit of yellow, so I guess they are indeed daffodils, although they are the latest ones I have seen! The front of our house stays shaded, so I guess they were just pokey.
This plant, on the other hand, has just been exploding! I don't know what it is, but I really like it. Akasha loves it and calls the flowers hearts. :)
