Welcome Spring

Should have posted these on Thursday ...

The first sign of spring around our house are these dwarf iris by the front door.

The real indicator, however, is when the violets start to bloom in the lawn.

No one planted these, as far as we know. They have always just been in the lawn as "volunteers", and fortunately no one ever used a broadleaf herbicide to kill off winter weeds.

You have to look to see them, since they are small and dark (this is an extreme closeup), but I see them every day in the spring when I head out to my car. They last for weeks.

I should have labeled this as a "snark" as well, but I decided not to mention my brother's recent blog showing fresh snow falling in his back yard.
