The water is mostly gone too. There was enough there the other day for the ducks to have a swim now it's not even an inch deep. I'm glad things are drying up though. It may make it easier for my crocus bulbs to survive. The stalks are green and so far, healthy.
The flowers didn't fare well once that snow hit. Poor things.
The daffodils seem to be just fine. They were slower to come up and it may be they knew it wasn't time to flower yet.
The ants came through all right too. I think the hill grew at least two inches since last year. I hope we don't have to get rid of them. The Mr. says if he doesn't see any ants in the house, they can stay. If he does, bye-bye ants. Me, I think they are just fine where they are and they aren't hurting anything as far as I can tell.
We even have a little bit of green grass here and there.
The best green plants though are these little babies. Hope's grandbabies to be exact. I had sent some of Hope's babies to Kathleen during my fundraising campaign for the Relay for Life and it turns out they did well in her yard. So she sent some of her seeds back to me. Thanks Kathleen! I gave some to a friend and these are the ones I kept. All but three have sprouted. I can't wait to see them grow and turn into big beautiful sunflowers.
