I have one lonely crocus that bloomed a few days ago, right up next to the south side of our house in the sun. Spring is slow to start this year. It's still too cold here to have much in the way of blooms, we are expecting a high around freezing today. Our first robins appeared a few days ago, poor cold little things.

Btw, that snowy pic looked so depressing!

The crocus' are blooming in Denver and I've seen some sort of small daffodils blooming - my regular sized daffodils are about 3' tall, poking out of the ground. I don't think they actually bloom until the end of March. Nights are wamer with lows in the upper 20s and days are in the 50s - 60s tomorrow.

This is the time I officially start back with "gardening", meaning it's time to put down the spring fertilizer on the lawn to green it up and I'll be filling the flower boxes with pansies by the weekend.

Last year in early March on a sunny, 70 degree day I went to a local nursery and bought a bunch of pansies and while I was loading them into the car, some man ran up to me and said, "Don't plant those! Winter's not done yet and they're going to die!" I had to explain to him how hardy pansies are. I'm not sure what temperature kills them back, but I'm guessing mid teens?

It warmed up to 60 degrees for the past week. But we have snow forecasted for later this week. I was really hoping the good weather would last longer. I checked our bulbs, but nothing yet. I HOPE it warms up soon. We still have some snow on the ground and it would be wonderful if it all melted off!

I planted the pansies yesterday, hosed down the grass and fertilized it. I've got Spring fever! (and it's going to be 65 degrees today)
