Spring is in the air

This past week, I decided that my Person needed a small push into doing a bit of gardening. I spotted some daffodils that had been coming up about every other year right smack dab in the middle of our back yard. On alternate years, Mister would mow them down before they got going, so they didn’t show up. But with the mower being stolen at the end of last year’s growing season, and his being out of work, he hadn’t yet bought a new mower to deal with the greenery. Fortunately, Mister got himself re-employed, so I showed Person where the plants were. I just knew that we had to get them out of there since this is the very weekend Mister plans to purchase and test a new mower. I marked the spot – can you see me?

It only looks like a jungle, but it's really our unmowed back yard.

Could you get just a little closer, please?

Person then dug them up and we found a safer place in the front planting area where they are now happily ensconced. Once we finished with them, I noticed a pot of something that looked rather sad. Person affirmed that it was a pot of tulips left from last year that she had completely neglected after thinking them dead. However, they had little fresh buds coming up, despite being dry as tumbleweed, so she agreed to plant them as well. Then I spotted Grape Hyacinths in the back yard, all over the place just like the daffodils. She promosed to get them up soon and transplant them too, but I think I wore her out temporarily with the other plantings. As long as they are out by the time Mister gets a new mower, it will be OK.
Don't the flowers look pretty in their new (and much safer) home?

Person wasn’t as careful as she should have been when transplanting the daffodils, and broke one of the stems, so we brought it into the house where we can enjoy it.
And they look pretty in the house, too.

It’s very cheerful.

    […] so called good fortune of lacking a mower allowed us to see the problem. I (HittyG) had previously rescued some daffodils from the center of the grassy area and relocated them, just prior to Geneva’s arrival. Now that Mister was not only gainfully re-employed, it was […]
