The birds are starting to come back, but there is still a decent amount of snow. No sign of anything growing yet.

Success consists of a series of little daily victories.

Here in MI we still have some snow on the ground in patches, but I see some crocus peeking out. Last week I saw the first robins returning. I"m anxious to get out in my garden.

My first yellow crocus poked through today. I hope everything does well through tonight's storm - we're predicted to get 5 to 8 inches of heavy wet snow.

Forgot to mention that the chipmunks and skunks have come out from hibernation, as we found out to our dismay Friday night. Let doggie out at 11PM before going to bed, and sure enough there was a skunk by the neighbor's shed. Doggie will chase raccoons up a tree but has never bothered skunks - until now. Fortunately most of the spray missed her, or she would have spent the night in the garage and had a lovely bath the next day!

Here in northern Illinois the daffodils, tulips, and crocuses are emerging from the soil, but no buds yet. Plenty of robins around as well and the leaf and flower buds on some of the trees are starting to swell. Still lots of brown grass but if you look under that there is green near the soil. The ground is starting to thaw and is very soft in places. Also very muddy, so trying to stay off it until it dries out some, in order to not compact it.

Bought my seeds for the year and have some sweet potatoes in dirt inside so I will have plants to put in when it gets warm enough. Also starting the seeds for both vegetables and flowers. I just hope I can find enough places to put them until it is warm enough to have them outside during the day! Hoping we can make a frame for the grow lights so we can put them over the tables that have seed trays on them as well (something that we can take apart and easily store from year to year - have to design it ourselves I guess).

Bluebirds are here and nesting.
All trees but sycamores have leafed out.
Chickasaw plum trees were beautiful with their frosting of flowers.
Rabbits are out in full force. So is the hawk.
Blueberries are swelling.
Weeds are being weedy. I need to learn which ones I could add to salads!! I think there are a lot of antioxidants in my yard right now!!

Daffodils are blooming here too, but today they snow on them. My potted broccoli up close to the house continues to produce numbers of small heads as it has been doing for the last several months (I still can't explain it and yes I know they are fairly short day bloomers but this is really short).

I'm in TN ..... I had daffodils during Christmas, and then again last month they started blooming again. And now everything is blooming. My neighbors fruit tree is all white with blossoms. My other neighbor has a tulip tree that is in bloom. .... I think we just skipped winter.

Please, Please watch and listen for motorcycles while your out and about!

Peace, Love & Hugs

I'm from Wisconsin. There's still snow on the ground and I think we're expecting another 2" today. It won't be to much longer and I'll be spending lots of time in my gardens emoticon

I haven't been waiting. I can almost always find something to do in the gardens as long as they are not covered by snow.
