Eranthis hyemalis opened in my garden today. They have been out in a
neighborhood garden for over a week. There is no sign yet of E. cilicica or
the  hybrids - that's usual here. 

Several crocus opened today, too, including Ruby Giant (generally
attributed to C. tommasinianus but not much like it in my view). C.
ancyrensis and C. korolkowii are just putting up buds. C. korolkowii blooms
in mid-January in mild years. 

Most Galanthus are now up and blooming except for those in very shaded
areas (where the ground is still frozen). 

One Hepatica nobilis form has a nice cluster of flower buds up, too.

Ice is off the pond and the goldfish are sunning. 

Finally, things are poppin'.
