Hints of spring are everywhere, including a few butterflies. I continue to lay soaker hoses and order daylilies. I don't have room for them really, but I can't seem to help myself when there is a really wonderful sale. They should come in April. We have at least five martins flying around the neighborhood and checking out the martin house. Yippee -- they are back! The foliage of the irises I dug last year and the new ones are looking great. Still no rain. We need it so badly.
