We raked and bagged a lot of leaves, picked up trash, and cleared away sticks and branches this past week-end. All of the bulbs seem to have survived the late frost - most of the daffodils are in bloom or about to be, and we're watching to see what appears next. We've taken to walking by the garden on the way to school each (or almost each) morning, so we see the daily changes. It is always full of birds, mostly robins, in the morning. The fact that the garden is being cared for seem to have eliminated most of the messes left by dogs, which is nice.
