Your flowers sure put the taste of spring in the air they are lovely and sooo nice to see.
I have nothing yet but the snow is melting and hopefully plants will start popping.

I thought the tulips bloomed after the daffs were done blooming. Im surprised theres so many tulips getting ready to bloom. Im excited to see my first blue lagoon tulip bloom. so far no sight of one yet. my daff mix is a trumpet mix. and i have giant pink ones in there too. also some snow peak tulips. the daydream is a mix also.

Rain here... Again!!!
And if it isn't rainning it's snow. Sometimes I do wonder what I do love about England... Not for the weather that's for sure!
The only things I have out at the minute are snowdrops, crocus and hellebores. But everything else is sprouting so I can't complain...

Unfortunately, I have a foot and a half of snow on the ground still. Northern Minnesota - last year I was in the 70's this year we are struggling to hit 30.

They are definitely beautiful, cinnie! Swampy, I definitely don't miss the slow thaw of the Connecticut winter! The kids talk about the cold there, even today they were, and they don't miss it a bit, either. Eastern NC is calling your name!
