gardening 2:00:00 
Got the last of the chipping done and things spiffed up, ready for the daffs and tulips. Crocuses are few and far between, victims of the 7 chipmunks who got to them before I managed to get them under control...may they Rest In Peace in the swamp. Mums are slow to show themselves but the day lilies are making their presence know - even the ones that sat in a bucket in the shed over the winter. I replanted them along the swamp in hopes that they won't get too overrun by the swamp growth. Lots of evidence that the mint will again make a comeback as well as the garlic and irises. Trimmed the elderberries, showing new growth so they should recover from the last storm. Other trees weathered the wind storm, buds look good although it will be a few weeks before any leaves appear....all is well on the homestead!
