I also saw plenty of last years arugula flowering, and getting ready to set seed.
The violets sprinkled throughout the yard are starting to blossom, something that usually happens in May. These pop up in different places around the yard, because we don't believe in lawns that are a monoculture of grass. Much to the dismay of our neighbors.
Although, somebunny is pretty happy with that, because it provides him with lots of these.
The asparagus seems to be one of the plants that is affected by this. Last weekend I cut the first spear, the earliest ever. I thought I would be picking more through the week, but the other spears haven't grown one smidgen since the weekend.
Someone else was checking out the asparagus bed when I was out there. She (or he, I don't know how to tell with robins), walked along the asparagus row, paralleling me.
Then it hopped up on the fence. At the bottom of the picture are the pea plants that have sprouted, and then, like the asparagus, done nothing.
Finally, up onto the nearby trellis to scold me, before taking off. See her /him on the little box on the post?
OK, I'm going to fly off now, too. There is a big pile of mulch calling to me. Have a great weekend, everybun!
