Well, things finally started happening this past weekend. Within hours of my last post the black leaf-filled garbage bags were hauled away by my Father in Law. I normally help out with this chore but he did it while I was at work. So - score! That saved me at least half a day.
Unfortunately, some of my Daffodils were planted underneath those bags and when the bags were pulled away, there were a few nasty surprises:
Looks like rejects from a creature feature, don't they? Ick. I broke off the stems and will move them to a better location in the Fall.
It rained all day Saturday so I did some indoor chores and crafts (which I'll show you later) but Sunday morning I was out early cleaning up the beds and putting out some of my new decorations.

The beds look sparse - they're all pretty much empty - but at least they're visible and now leaf-free.
The Daffodils are starting to develop. Yesterday, the morning dew clung to this one (which opened today) and although my camera just can't capture how beautiful it really was, this is pretty close.

The Hosta has finally been uncovered and they look to be doing well. I plan to move these either in the back shade garden or to the front. I haven't decided which yet. In their place I'm going to plant more Iris.
