What's coming up? What's coming back? What's probably not?

I've got Daffodils with buds forming, crocus leaves but no flowers yet - maybe they're not going to bloom for me this year - daylilies coming up, some Tulip leaves but they look kind of loose - again, I'm thinking that they might not flower (when do you know about Tulips?). Last fall's foxglove leaves seem to be greening up, so I think they'll be fine.

I'm desperately searching for signs of life in three lilies I planted last year, as well as some echinacea plants. So far, nothing. When do yours start showing up, anyone?

I'm still buried in snow. I usually start to see green at the end of march.
Last fall, a friend of a friend gave me a 5 gallon pail full of Mr.E bulbs. I can't wait to see what I got.lol. I hope they pretty.
About your tulips, hows the soil? It might be too compact. Try adding compost or maybe they're too deep.
good luck.

Poor you! The snow's been gone from my yard for at least a week. I think my tulips are probably played out. They're not from this past fall, they're from the year before, so I guess they're just done. Pretty expensive habit!

ffreidl,
some tulips last for decades. My sister orders from ??(somewhere in europe)?? I can't remember, but they are very expensive and spread great. she gave me some. These are not the kind you can get from walmart or michigan bulb co. Those are great for a year or two and die out.
I'll find out the name and post it.
snow should be gone soon! 3 days of rain will get rid of it. I hope.

The only colorful bulbs are crocuses and a few Siberian squill, no open flowers yet, but you can see the colors in the closed blossoms. The daffodils don't seem to have even emerged yet. There's a pansy or two in bloom.

Lots of other stuff going on  corn salad has come back; sorrel, thyme, and sage have leafed out. Brambles have leaf buds, some (blackberries) starting to break. Celeriac and just a couple of kale and chard plants seem to have made it through the winter.

Crocus, daffs, primula, squill and hellebores are blooming. All other bulb foliage - tulips, alliums, bluebells, fritillaria, colchicum, lycoris are growing like crazy!
