A couple days ago, I was just outside of boston, and I noticed flowers!! It looked like tulips coming up (I could be wrong) but definitely getting the growth-

From all you gardeners and flower lovers- let everyone know when the first plants/flowers of the season start coming up through the soil, and what they are-

I showed a couple of houses this week where flowers were starting to peep up. I still think we have one more 6' storm to come in Southern Maine, I hope I'm wrong.

This isn't a good weather pattern for the orchards. You don't want temperatures to be this warm in March followed by a hard freeze a month later.

These bouts of spring in the winter absolutely do confuse the trees, and plants. When this kind of thing happens, we most always have a smaller crop of everything that grows on a tree.

I have crocus blooming in the back yard on a sunny slope....and peonies are poking thru the ground....and daffodils are up at least an inch.....day lilies are poking thru. I am listening for the peepers to announce spring!

Been hearing the woodcock at daybreak & nightfall for a good week now. Its arrival is my favorite sign that the season is changing.

Tulips are up about 2" and about 3 or 4 other perennials are showing up too. Helebores are spotted and one daffodil has a bud. These are in my morning sun garden. I have something called Bluestar amsonia that is up about an inch in the afternoon sun garden. It was so delightful to watch a bluejay taking a bath in the birdbath this morning.
