These were new plantings last year and I didn't expect to see them right away this spring. I knew something was up when I was raking away and smelled the oregano in the air. Mmm... what a smell!
I also discovered some onions that overwintered. I got these for free at a local greenhouse last summer. They had planted the seeds rather late and the onion plants were just teeny-tiny last year. So I planted them last year and they barely grew. I wonder what they'll do this year.

I planted some tulips when we first moved in four years ago and they just never did very well, so I haven't bothered planting any more even though tulips are my favorite spring bulb flower. I'm not sure if I'll try again this fall, I'm feeling more adventurous and maybe if I purchase some good bulbs from a good supplier (John Scheepers?) then I'll have better luck. I just don't know of a lot of people with luck with tulips in this area. We'll see - there's a full year of gardening ahead and I'm starting to get excited!
