Nothing, thank goodness.
I would say snow but snow does not bloom.

I have some coneflowers that seeded themselves from last year and are starting to open their sunny faces. I’ve got a bed or purple irises that are about halfway done with their show.

I found these sweet daisy-like flowers at a local grocery store, they’re called Gazania. I’d never seen them before and they’re so bright and pretty! I bought a bunch and, although it’s just a week in they are doing great.

If the sun ever comes out I have a small raised bed I’m in the middle of creating for a couple of tomatoes and maybe peppers and cucumbers.

My raspberries and strawberries are coming out of hibernation beautifully and the trees are just starting to barely bud/leaf out - other than that, not much. I keep looking around for tulips, but I haven't seen many. Probably another two weeks or so. We're supposed to get into the mid-upper 70s the next few days with lows in the 40s and I would bet that will wake lots of things up..

You are way ahead than what I would have expected in WA....our rhodos here bloom late June

enjoy

Grape hyacinths, giant hyacinths and daffodils.
The tulips are budding as are some poppies.

Sigh. Makes me want to take a road trip.

Just came home from warmer climes before Easter to snow and more snow here in quirky Southern MN. No sign of daffodils, giant allium, or crocus yet. There is some hardy dead nettle under the melting snow and on the west side of the house I have a handful of orange tulips beginning to peak through. Don't know if they'll bloom this year.

Enjoy your blooms for me.

Daffodils, hyacinth, and tulips. Heather and 2 of the smaller azaleas, both purple. My crimson flowering quince have finally come into full flower and are just blazing away on the west side of the yard, and the new peach flowering quince (still tiny) is budded out and will probably fully flower this week.

Love the quince....just beautiful. Azaleas in VA now...? None blooming around here in NC that I've seen...
