...that the dandelions are growing like crazy but now much else is showing up in the garden yet?

Can you tell that I can hardly wait to get out there? Actually, some of the tulips are up and the garlic too, but still, nothing is growing like the weeds!

Happy Easter, everyone.

RE: Why is it......?

Gardener's law! I have lots of tulips, crocuses and daffs coming up, new growth on some daylilies and a very early peony starting. And weeds. LOTS of weeds!

How are you, Margaret? See you at the end of the month? I'm bringing my granddaughter with me this year!

RE: Why is it......?

Wow, your garden is way ahead, Marcia.

End of the month sounds great - weekend of the 28th?

That will be fun to have your granddaughter along, a gardener-in-training, perhaps?

RE: Why is it......?

Yes, the 28th. And she's definitely a gardener-in-training. She has her own little garden at my house and she also has petunias blooming on my windowsill already!

We had a week of incredibly warm weather in March and that kick-started a lot of things. I've never had crocuses blooming in March before!
