Default 2/4 basjoo coming up!

I really should say 2/5, but number 5 had a real nice mouse nest in there when I uncovered it, and a big hole in the ground. So I'd say that one is a goner for sure.
The oldest one I think it's 5 years old now, it's got a large sprout coming up. and one of the others had about a foot of new shoot on it when it came up, then a customer looking at the pond promptly stepped on it. I could have killed her!
It's growing back though.
I put the pictures in my photo gallery, but they're not too spectacular yet.
They're only a few inches, but this seems earlier than usual.
