DH and I bought a house in mid-Nov (winter was already in full swing here). The yard is almost half an acre, so I really want to put in a tiered veggie garden as well as a flower bed.

To make a long story short, I have been keeping myself busy with paintings and have put off going to the market to buy flower bulbs. Boy, I am glad that I did.

In like the last two weeks we have had huge patches of daffodils and wild flowers sprout up in four or five different places in our yard. Yay! I don't need to plant any flowers now.

Veggies, well that another story. That's all on me. We'll see how that goes...

Oh that's cool. I'm picturing it with your house.
