I love landscaping from start to finish. I have taken friends yards from a weedy mess to a
beautiful oasis. I also do it as a sideline business. I have been landscaping for over 20 years, just recently started it to make a little extra income, but look for projects to do. I love pruning. what I hate the most is removing leaves from my flower beds. Can't do it with a leaf blower, b/c it blows the mulch, lava rock or whatever else I have lining the beds, so i get on my hands and kneews and pick the leaves out by hand, so as not to mess the mulch (mostly pine bark nuggets) up
Last fall I posted a pic of some bulbs that had shoots coming up in November. While we had many suggestions on what they may be, we decided we would have to wait to see if/when they
flowered. The leaves went dormant through our mild winter and continued growing again as spring approached. Now we have flowers, finally. I am sure many of our knowledgeable gardeners here will be able to easily identify it for me. In addition to identifying, I would like to know if their appearance in the fall with flowers in the spring is normal or did they somehow come up at the wrong time?

it's spiderwort. I started with one in a front yard flowerbed and have divided several times.
Now have it in many places around my yard and have gave some to neighbors and family as well. It is easy to grow and divide and grows quickly.
