    It looks like more good news than bad in your garden so far. :)

    I definitely don't recommend tasting anything you think might be overwintered lemongrass! *GRIN* Not in our zones, at least.

    Looks like plenty of good news. By the way, in that first picture of the leaves, is that star-shaped leaf in the middle some kind of lupine? Looks a lot like it to me for some reason. Either way, I'd vote to let the leaves stay there as long as they're chipped and not matted up. Things will come up through them just fine.

    You do what I finally trained myself out of after 5 years, by the way: Say "lilac" when you mean "lavender!" I'm glad to see I'm not the only one--they're fragrant plants with purple blooms whose names are also colors, right? So it's understandable. (And I still do it... I should have said that I'm trying to train myself out of it!!!)

    But yeah, they look fine. If you look down further on those lavender stems, you should see new buds where more green leaves will come out soon.

    Nancy -- you're right, it is way more good news than bad news.

    Kim -- Thank you for pointing out the lilac/lavender issue. You are totally right, I do it all the time. Purple colored, smell good, same first letter, it's an understandable error -- which I fixed immediately!

    On to the wildflowers, it could absolutely be lupine since it was one of the seeds in the original mix. The leaves are definitely chipped and not at all matted, so with your advice I'm feeling better about leaving them there.
