We have a crocus blooming, that's a sure sign spring is not too far away. Daffodils here are up about 3-4 inches, and yesterday I actually saw a small clump that had buds! Can you beleive it? Woo-hoo!

Gad I'm so jealous!

I alternate between wishing that my bulbs would grow faster and telling them to stay down because we're going to have sub-freezing night temperatures here for awhile...

RE: First bloom!

Yes, I have crocus blooming and the tulips are up about 4" along with the daffodils. And I saw a bud on one of the daffs! Also the grass and fields are greening up!! I am sooooo ready for spring! OF course first it would have to dry out in order to plant anything! rain, rain, rain!
