Spring has sprung! Saturday in the yard.

Had a good day working in the yard. Uncovering perennials and already fighting the creeping Charlie. Edged the rose bed after spreading manure on the roses and the asparagus.
Asparagus is already 3 feet tall if you can see it.
Between our piling some wood for a couple weeks and the utility company doing some digging we have some large patches of dirt next to our yard. They're on the "communal through way" that goes along side our yard to one block over.
The creeping Jenny and 'Big Ears' Stachys surprised me with how good they look together. The 'Elegantissima' Red Twig Dogwood is also super pretty.
I love the purple creeping phlox.  Or should I say lavendar or blue. 
Isn't this Columbine beautiful!
I love these Pansies! They look like they have dark eyes.

We definitely need the rain promised on Sunday.
