Let’s play a game. It will be fun. I hope.

A number of plant friends have popped up in the backyard: tulips, daffodils, etc…

Okay, I have no idea what the “etc…” are but that’s where the game comes in.

I’m posting a few pictures here of the plants coming up in my first garden, hoping that you, dear reader—out there in gardening world—will recognize them.

If you see anything you can name, let me know. And if you know whether or not they’re weeds, that would help a lot, too!
