Hangin` in there......

Well, these poor daffodils have suffered no end of teasers since mid February - snow storm, chinook, snowstorm, chinook ad nauseum. I think they may be freeze dried by now!

I don't think my daffodils will ever get the chance to see the light of day. They're covered in about 5 feet of snow !

Let us know when and if yours bloom :)

RE: Hangin` in there......

Holy smokes, that`s a lot of snow!!! The buds are showing on these, so I hope they didn`t freeze. I just planted them last fall. On the south side of the house, the iris and oriental poppy are showing up. I see from the migration map that the ruby throated hummingbirds are on the move north so there is hope!

RE: Hangin` in there......

Mine too, Lynn. But maybe just four feet! :>

RE: Hangin` in there......

I truly wish coveting wasn't a sin - so here goes my confession-- I want zone 4 dafterdills the snow in my front yard is over 8ft at least for the first 10 feet the rest of the yard has at least 3 feet. But the good thing is that it is supposed to get up to plus 10 by next weekend. Hurry spring! Summer might get here before you do.
