    On my evening walk last night:
    Noticed one yard a few surveys over has daffs about to bloom-first set of the flowers with buds visible that I've seen this month. Also saw random crocuses on lawns or greenspaces nowhere near a flower bed-either singles or trios. What a fun sight to discover last night! They were "waving" hello to me.

    I currently have green onions, red rhubarb, and red tulips growing. I've already been weeding the rest of the garden.

    If you despise your neighbors and you share a fence with them, then all you have to do to piss them off for years to come is one simple thing: plant lily of the valley. They should be outlawed. A scourge, they are! I don't know if it was the current neighbors or the previous ones that did the planting... either way, DAMN YOU!!

    I shall start digging today.

    Miss Hyacinth or one of her kind has bloomed in the front flowerbed. Tulips remain hedging their blooms but I felt better noticing that the Central Library in Burlington has a round bed of tulips that have not opened yet (two or three flowers showed a bit of colour through closed bulbs).

    I didn't think my neighbours despised me but maybe they do. On one side, our neighbours lily of the valley has creeped over into the tile in our walkway. In between the tile is one of the worst places to grow!! On the other side, our neighbour's son runs over our hostas every week with their massive garbage, organic, and recycling bins. They've stopped growing since they've moved in. I tried to block the bins with big blocks of lumber, but they're always kicked aside.

    In the back, some purple flowering groundcover chokes out my peonies and roses. We've also inherited some English ivy that's rooted itself between the fencing, and the creme de la creme, coltsfoot - listed as a known noxious weed on the provincial government website. It took three years of hours and hours of digging to get them out.

    I also seem to have inherited daylilies and tiger lilies. I mentioned them to the neighbour once and she said "you're welcome". Apparently, they're a gift.

    I managed to dig some of the lily-of-the-valley out yesterday but the ground is still too mucky. And it rained again today. It's a challenging spot also because it's right underneath a red twig dogwood, so I've got those roots to contend with, plus there's a [finally] well-established plant that I don't want to disturb. I moved around the three heuchera to get to the scourge, not concerned about those because if they die, they're easily replaceable. Darned if I can remember the name of the plant that I'm coddling there though.
