When we moved into our apartment in February, the front garden was nothing more than snow and trash. Once it melted, I went in and weeded out the dead leaves and garbage and low and behold, a bunch of tulips sprouted, making for a welcome site in April.
Once the tulips passed their prime, another bush started getting taller and taller and, well, pretty much took over... cut to my most favorite surprise this spring, my peonies:
Yes, they are RIGHT outside our bedroom window and I couldn't be happier! Many thanks to whoever planted them a few seasons back :)
