Part of a series of garden minutes from A Gardener’s Notebook

Our recent rain (although we have had no more so far this year) kicked off the bubs in the garden. I noticed these first daffodils of 2018 daffodils just yesterday.

Leucojum is a small genus of bulbous plants native to Eurasia belonging to the Amaryllis family, subfamily Amaryllidoideae.[2][3][4] As currently circumscribed, the genus includes only two known species,[1] most former species having been moved into the genus Acis. Both genera are known as snowflakes.

Leucojum is a compound of Greek λευκος, leukos “white” and ἰόν, ion “violet”. The spelling Leucoium is also used. Other common names include snowbelldewdrop, and St. Agnes’ flower— Wikipedia.org

Moose PVC Bird Nest Box via Instructables

A new concept and design for nesting boxes for your garden. They look rugged and easy to clean, 2 important factors with any birdhouse design. — Douglas
 
I inherited an interest in birds from my father, whose family grew up next door to a bird expert. Ruth Thomas studied and banded birds and wrote, “Crip, Come Home” as well as, “Brush Goat, Milk Goat” and a weekly column on birds in the 1940s in the Arkansas Democrat Newspaper. Many of my relatives have fed birds (including hummingbirds) and land-lorded Purple Martins and Bluebirds. I finally upgraded to property that lent itself to land-lording in 1998. My plastic Purple Martin gourds last forever, while my Bluebird houses have been replaced many times over the years. In researching PVC as an option, I ran into the Gilbertson design but thought it was overly complex and had some risk for dropping the nest-box onto the ground, so I designed my own nest-boxes and put them into use in 2016. With only 1.5 acres for 5 nest-boxes, 2017 saw 13 Bluebirds and 20 House Wrens fledged from the new boxes.
