daffodilAiring out the winter bedding today, I found the first volunteer in the flower bed. It’s a tiny one, the photo doesn’t provide scale. Rumor has it these are coming up in many parts of the country. Daffodils are a cheery, optimistic flower that tells us of spring to come. Much nicer than a ground hog. Not that I’ve seen a ground hog in anything less than a… disordered state. Shop cat used to summarily dispatch those.

As ever, here’s the selection from the archives for this week in blog history -which includes the tail end of the MAGIC trade show reports. Have a productive and relaxing week end.

    Here in OH there’s still a foot of snow over my daffodill & crocus bed (unusal for these parts to say the least). As it melts it turns into a block of solid ice. We chizzeled a path through it for the old dog to comfortably make his way into the yard.
    It will be interesting to see how this effects or spring bloom schedule. Normally those crocuses would be budding by now.

    We already have crocus, daffodils, ornamental plums, magnolias, lily-of-the-valley shrub, and violets. We’ve had pretty mild weather lately but the snow level is supposed to be around 500 feet tonight and tomorrow with rain elsewhere.
