Signs of Spring
With all of the work going on in the house, we have (unfortunately) a small pile of debris building in the backyard. Mostly it’s excess wood, old cabinets, and things that I’m slowly getting rid of via the weekly trash pickups.
Yesterday, I spotted this guy sprouting from within a crack in a plank of wood.
Along our driveway (a shared one, with our neighbor)… I spotted this small collection of plants by our neighbor’s house. I’m not sure what they are, but seeing them after a fresh rain made me think of tiny, half-opened umbrellas.
I had this sense that the raindrops were actually holding these guys down. And that in a few hours, when the day and the sun helped to evaporate the night’s rain… these guys would pop open, reaching skyward.
There’s a lot of activity in our yard, as of late. I know it was pretty barren (especially after we had all our trees removed), but now that the weather has warmed… things are starting to get a little out of control back there. Plants popping up everywhere.
