first peek at the spring bulbs

Last fall I planted about 500 bulbs, mostly daffodils, in various places on our property.  Guess what I found when I was out and about looking around in the flower beds!!

Yep, little daffodil shoots braving the still snow-covered world.  I just cannot wait to see the riot of color as they come up and bloom!  I have actually forgotten all the places I planted these, so it will be a bit of a surprise even for me!  I will keep you updated. 

It also looks like, for the first time ever, I will get some hellebore (Lenten rose) flowers this year!  Little fat buds are on their way up.
