Snow, snow, nothing but never ending snow is blooming in my garden. I'm so sick of winter and this one seems to be eternal.

I miss forsythia. I remember when I lived on Long Island it was always the first thing to bloom in early spring. However we do have something flowering all year long. Here in SW Florida, we don't get many of the same flowers and our vegetable planting season is different for some things.

Yes, sw FL has amazing year round flowering plants, lucky you.

Forsythia is what I remember too as being first to bloom in spring...

Right now I have Artichokes that should be pickable in a week or so... My apple tree is blooming. I also have my herb garden and spring mix that I have been eating.

How do you think it looks around here. Exact same. With March every single day except for maybe 5 were below average with the month being well below avg and now April too. Same things are blooming here now as you, but trees mostly bare. I wonder when we will see everything leafed out this year. If this continues it would be the latest I have ever seen. Blame it on that SSW event in Feb that disrupted the vortex and gave each of us a piece of it. A stronger colder Arctic is much better for all of us than this warmer and warmer one.

Same as here...

hoping we don't go from winter to summer without that wonderful spring blossoming and cool temps...

We might see a bit of a speed up of blooms and foliage soon as we are forecast a spell of temps in the 70s and possibly 80s, about time!

What are your averages so far? February was cold, March was 3rd cloudiest on record and very cold, which hasn't helped at all.

February temperatures: Meteociel - Climatologie mensuelle de London (UK)
March: Meteociel - Climatologie mensuelle de London (UK)

March 1 got the coldest temperature ever recorded in March. The high on the 2nd is the coldest March max temp on record. Before this year, March had never seen a subzero high.

In NC we had very warm, lovely days in Feb then a cold, cold rainy March.

We are also expecting warm temps later this week...

I have palm trees. Not sure if they are blooming or not. They look the same most of the year.
