Or at least they were before the snow and tornado like winds that we received in April. Good ol' Alberta. Gotta love it here!
I was very happy to see green poking through the dirt, but not so happy that I had to water the flowerbeds to achieve this. What a dry spring, I have never had to water my flowerbeds to get things growing. But there was a point where I could see the front was parched and not a single iris growing so I knew that I had to water or everything was going to be late.
I really hope that it's not a sign of things to come.. I would love a hot, rainy summer.
Please-oh-please-oh-please. We need rain desperately this year, Alberta is turning into the Dust Bowl.
Anyhow, on to cheerier, greener things.

I do believe that this is my Shasta daisy. I planted one of those, right? Right?Anyone? I have such a bad habit of planting then forgetting.
Rhubarb! Blackbird, you were craving it last year, so here's hoping that I can provide you with some this year.
