Natural Gardens take care of themselves

Just about this time each year (after the NW Flower & Garden Show) the bulbs and see think it is time to strut their stuff. I see little leaves reaching out of the soil to the sunshine that is lingering a little later each day. 
I walked by a great garden about two weeks ago. It is a pretty modest deal, but very easy to take care of. Lots of evergreen shrubs and bulbs. Because the gardener had left leaves of the bulbs to rot in the winter, or possibly the leaves were still green until the snow storm we had at the turn of the new year, the crows were pecking around the base for worms & adding to the nutrition and tilth of the soil. Now, the leaves are emerging and well on their way to their next phase of life.
