Here come the Daffodils

Look what's popping up in my yard:

The bank that sold us our house (the previous owner went into foreclosure) didn't have any information about the house or the yard. I remember last spring watching with wonder as my yard bloomed. Daffodils were the first surprise, then irises, day lillies, stella d'oro, hosta, lamb ear, etc. I was equally delighted by the honey suckle, wild strawberry, and violets, but I've since learned why other people don't like them.

I love the way honeysuckle smells but hate how it kills everything else near it. We used to eat the wild strawberries around our house and you can candy the violets and eat them as well.
