Hi MarthaCR,
Crocus are a happy sight. Its at this time of the year that I cant decide whether to pick the flower (for drying)or cherish it as it is!

As the snow has receded from most of my gardens, I've been poking around and seeing signs of life on daylilies, iris, phlox, a delphinium, etc. The Louisiana iris I planted last year is all green, that's a good sign because I thought their hardiness was iffy. Roses seem to have done exceptionally well, knock on wood. Many have green canes up to the snowline, 2-3'.

I visited one of the gardens I work in on the other side of town. She has a "hot spot", southern side of her house, where the daffodils have buds, beareded iris is up 12", viola are in bloom, hyacinths budded, tulips ready to, a few hollyhocks coming along. It is amazing! I will be able to start working there next week, at least in the hot spot. The perennial border on the other side of her yard is still covered in snow.

I was hoping that the lime tree I over wintered is alive.

I will check later today as we got in last night.

It stands in the back yard wrapped in an insulated blankets and mulch.
