First Iris of the Year

I used to be obsessed with trying to find variety names of all my iris, but not so much any more since most were "inherited", and it was a guess on many.  My first non-dwarf iris of the season has bloomed.


I did find the name of the next Iris:  'Rare Edition'

Early Spring Flowers



Yellow Poppies (Celandine)

Bleeding Hearts




Snakes

Caught one of our garter snakes out on a cool day.  He was a little slow, so I had to redirect him away from the dog.

It's Spring Tilling Time!

After a week of rain, it finally dried out enough to till the vegetable garden.  I was able to get the peas, spinach, and onions planted before the next rain comes through.  It will be a few more weeks for the potatoes to go in.  Nice to get things going!
