What the rain hath wrought

In the yard, the ground is holding just as much moisture as it's ever possible for it to hold. All the Grand Primo narcissus flowers are bursting forth, with their little yellow rounded bubble cups and many flower stalks to a bulb. Hyacinth rosettes are showing everywhere. Many other varieties of species tulips are showing their leaves. Our true paperwhites are still blooming. The earliest varieties are ending, but more are blooming in various odd spots in the yard. Dutch iris leaves continue to appear. Perhaps because rains have fallen at just the right times, we've had no killing frost even yet.
