Signs of Life - Dutch Iris.
I spotted some of my dutch iris coming up. Growing up on a farm - Our parents would take us for ride too look at all the corn, wheat, and other items that were growing. As a kid - it seemed boring and we had just done this a couple days ago! How much could it grow in two days!. But now - I am always anxious to see what is coming up every time I go out to my escape plot - which is what I call the land I rent to plant my bulbs. Now I understand my father's excitement getting out of the truck and looking closely at the sprouts. I do the same thing now. The picture is Dutch iris poking through the dirt. I planted them about 9 days ago.
