The flowering trees are blooming, the crocuses (crocusi?) are everywhere, the daffy's are getting ready to show their faces and the birds are waking me up in the morning. We're lucky here in Seattle, spring comes early due to the mild winters although the late snows tend to catch the plants off guard.
Eastern Nebraska got hit with 5" of snow Friday eve, but it's already melting. We are SUPPOSE to get in2 the upper 50's, possibly even 60 1 day, 3 days this wk. We are starting to see more & more warmer days.
Nothing blooming, tho. Too early. We ARE hearing more birds, so I'm guessing some are heading back.

Oh yes - the signs are there - robins have returned in mass, daffodils and grape hyacinths are up, the daphne is almost in bloom, our arthritic hazelnut tree has its catkins elongating and flowers blooming, the lords and ladies are up, and we've been pruning our orchard during the sun breaks. Unfortunately the pollen count is also up, but I can ignore that if I try real hard.
Being further north I imagine you are a bit behind us. You might even be at a higher elevation too - we're at about 700 feet.
Hang in there - it's coming. Diana
