Spring Peeking Out

One of my perennials was undaunted by snow and ice and is peeking out of the winter mulch.  Oh, happy day!

I hope to put down the cornmeal pre-emergent for weeds on my lawn this weekend -- my neighbor loaned me her spreader -- and I also hope to get out Grandpa's Weeder and pull the weeds out of my lawn while they are easy to see.  It's nice that they green up earlier than the lawn so you can yank them out.  I could easily spend hours weeding... it's good therapy.

Here's the link to Grandpa's Weeder -- it's a great tool that I got from a gardening friend.  Several of my neighbors borrow it throughout the year -- it's fab.
