It's snowing here in NC. Won't do much harm but this little piece cheered me up.

Primrose 50cents a plant at HomeDepot this weekend. Wife and youngest daughter just came home with 40 plants.

Cheaper than through my wholesale nursery.

Yup spring is coming quick at least here in California. 71 today in the Central Valley just south of Sacratermato.

Pretty pictures, thanks NoKudzu. It's snowing here, too. It's been on and off with no real accumulations. In spite of the cold temps today the spring plants and flowers have been trying to make a show. It has been another screwy winter. The cherry trees have been attempting to bloom, the first daffodils have been blooming as has the Candytuft. Lots of bulb greens are showing from more daffodils, tulips, lilies, allium, hyacinths and so on. I'm sure there's more I haven't noticed from the windows.

Bulldogdad I assume you'll be planting all those primroses? LOL On my way to another store 2 weeks ago, I walked past the local Lowe's Garden section and it was still all closed up. Maybe I should go check and see if they have some early bird deals like those now? That was pretty cheap!

Sitting here on Cape Cod this morning looking out the bay window at the raging snowstorm with the winds gusting to 50mph and suddenly a red breasted robin goes zipping by the window, flutters around then lands in a tree for me to look at him all puffed up. What happened to the old adage about the first Robin of Spring?? He won't be getting any worms today.

70 right now and the green thumbs are out in the back planting the primrose and tending to the succulent garden.

Yeah Ill probably have to rip them out when they kill them with too much water or some other thing.

I remember living back in NY seeing some of the Robins in midwinter, a foot of snow or more on the ground and wondering how on earth those poor things would survive, but apparently they do and some Robins don't ever leave. So much for the first ones back! I hope yours found something to live on and that you stay warm up there.

Noticed one here on LI last week and commented to Dh that maybe my eyes (or memory) are going as I am retired now but I could swear that robins were prettier when I was a kid. His red breast seemed more like a burnt sienna color and he was so blah looking. Robins I recall as a kid were much more vibrant colored. Maybe I was too!!!
