The ligularia is sprouting up. The well established plants and the seeds I planted last fall are all popping up. Pat and I will never have to buy another ligularia plant again. Pretty cool. The lenten rose has doubled in size from last year. There are three seperate flower stems this year. We're leaving the winter leaf mulch on the hosta beds for another couple of weeks. It's supposed to snow this week and the hosta aren't even close to popping up.
