Nature does know how to overcome obstacles. I see the plants growing up through mulches and weeds and leaves here too. It's great that spring is arriving for you.

That's so true Felicia, it always amazes me how the flowers struggle through the detritus from the previous year! Hope your daffs are in full bloom now.
