I had early blooming miniature daffodils in pots (probably 'forced' a bit for marketing), but now I've even one blooming example from previous years' dibbling. Still, I have a full tray of blooming miniature daffodils gracing my front stoop.
It is Presidents' Day, which means that the whole pruning process shall start the garden grooming processes anew for this year. I have not yet seen any forsythia in bloom, so I'm imaging that the calendular marker is leading the coevolutionary markers. I'm no longer beholden to accomplishing my pruning in one extended holiday weekend, like I did when I was gainfully employed. Now, I can pace myself.
So...I dunno 'bout the rest of you, but we have distinct and definite indicators of spring. Right here, on the ground, in Puddle City. We're not out of the woods, by any means, with regards the imposition of inclement and crappy weather, but the duration of any such is likely to be severely abbreviated. The prognosis is for rain....big surprise. But...right now...the sun is shining.

I'm glad it's coming into spring for you up there. I feel like the weather is getting a bit more autumnal than summer here, but having said that the weather is fine. Lovely warm days. I'm not too scared of winter here, it doesn't last long and the days never get too short.
The sight filled the northern sky; the imensity of it was scarcely conceivable. As if from Heaven itself, great curtains of delicate light hung and trembled. Pale green and rose-pink, and as transparent as the most fragile fabric, and at the bottom edge a profound fiery crimson like the fires of Hell, they swung and shimmered loosely with more grace than the most skillful dancer. ~ Northern Lights
It is still quite cold here, at least for northern Germany, but dry. We don't have a garden, but I have been wondering if we could plant strawberries in a flower pot inside. We do get a lot of sunlight in our flat.
