Along the side of the house, the alpine currant hedge has started to leaf out, which is a nice shot of colour. And, at the back, the rhubarb plants have started to develop full leaves. These are slightly larger than a dessert plate.
In the front, the Saskatoon bushes are starting to bud. No life from the raspberry canes yet and it looks like I need to cut out last year's fruiting canes.
The peonies around the side of the house have also poked through the soil (this one is about an inch high).
If I get some time this weekend, we'll be cleaning up the big perennial bed in the back yard. I plan to knock back the Persian cornflower this year (it has sprawled terribly) and also move some of the irises around front to make more room for potatoes next year.
