My crocuses were blooming before the heavy snow this week smashed them all. Many of my daffodils are blooming, just the shady ones are staying in bud form waiting for a warm up. Even the forsythias are ready to pop open, there very well could be some yellow out there by the end of the day today.
And yet the weather man is still saying the S word. Personally I will not be declaring spring until there is no more S in the weather forecast and it’s warm enough to not wear a jacket outside for a week straight….. or until the Spring Retreats start!
