The garlic I planted last fall is growing beautifully.

Not too long now til we'll be snipping snapes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Also growing beautifully are the ajuga. These grew in my parents' back yard, and when they moved a few were transplanted here. For me, a yard is not a yard without their springtime splash of purple.

Speaking of splashes - oceans, really - of purple, the violets continue to expand their territory.

This bee seemed to be taking as much enjoyment from them as I was. With each landing, her weight pulled the flower head down to the ground. Then she'd catapult off to the next blossom. I imagined her calling, "Wheeee!"
