Signs of Spring

Almost every Saturday morning when we are in town, Cindy and I go to the local Winfield Bistro to have  breakfast. The owner has a small parking lot island filled with perennials and a bird-feeder. It's interesting to follow the progress and results through the year. After braving the bitter cold this morning, loading up on carbs and then arriving at home, I noticed something peeking from the snow in the hell strip.
The tulips have arrived. I had almost forgotten that they had been planted.
Skirting around the garden, signs of life lead to signs of death.
 Agave parryi 'trincata'. No Bueno. 
I think this Agave parryi , it is still turgid. Hopefully I have found a cold hardy variety.
Colorguard Yucca starting to recover I believe.

Now back to my construction projects. Yahoo......
