Blossom Bloggin

I started cleaning out the flower beds today, mucking out the old spent stems and seed heads. The white crocuses are finally blooming (thanks for the heads up on that Pamela), the daffodils are budding and the teeny tiny tete-a-tete daffodils are in bloom. They're ridiculously small, but spread and naturalize like a dream.

Lovely, lovely. Lovely. I love the cups of the crocus.

Our daffodils and crocus are pretty gorgeous right now, just starting out, but my yard is atrocious. There are branches and leaves everywhere from the recent downpours we've had. I can't even see if our peonies have started yet. Tulips are days away here--lots of swords but no blooms yet.

My question for you is about japonica. There's an absolute thicket of it at an abandoned house where we already have permission to dig up daffodils and iris. Can one transplant this? We have moved 50-year-old roses and also forsythia before with good results.

Thanks for any help!
