A sprout? Nice! So this magic paper does work!
After spotting that, I took an even closer, careful look, and found a couple more.
Wonderful! It's making some progress after all.
This looks like it could be promising after all. Keep checking to see how things go as the weather continues to warm up. With a bit of luck, this could be a nice patch of flowers by April.
I also found a couple encroaching bits of grass, which I pulled up, and a little of what might be clover, which I left in case it's actually flowers too.
