They would be invasive here too if my DIL didn't keep them mowed off weekly.

I just walked around the yard getting in some sunshine and checking on the poultry. I stopped to look at some beds and discovered the poor deluded violets, daffodils, and even some fall crocus are coming up like crazy all over the place. Give these plants 2 days of some sunshine in the late morning thru mid afternoon and they think it is spring already.

After seeing some robins yesterday and the blue heron last week I don't think spring is as far away as the groundhog supposedly predicted it would be. It may be a long cool spring, but the plants will try desperately to banish the winter blahs. I found some heaved iris and daff bulbs but the soil is frozen solid so there was no pushing them back down into the earth. I just moved them to a place they will have a better chance of putting down roots sooner.

My perennial passion flower vine made several 'eggs' last fall. I picked some up off the ground just now and brought them inside so the seeds can dry. I don't know if the seeds are viable or not now that they have gone thru so much moisture and freezing weather. Nothing to lose by trying.

GOD bless and keep each of you.
