Jagged Edges & Shooting Stars

                                                                                                                                                             Here are a few of the things poking up in my yard today.

 These Ligularia have edges so crisp that it looks like someone cut them with a pinking shears.

These tightly bunched, shiny leaves belong to the kirengeshoma palmata, sometimes called Yellow Wax Bells.  They like partial shade and get astonishingly large(shrub-sized) for something that starts from the ground up every year.  photo
