Hi Jim and all,

Here in central North Carolina the tree peony buds are beyond swelling and are
beginning to lengthen.  Most of the herbaceous peonies are still sleeping but some
of  the bright red buds have extended a few inches above the surface.

The stars of my garden right now are Narcissus, with 'Ice Follies', 'Jetfire', and
'Tête-à-tête' approaching peak bloom with 'Carlton', 'Saint Keverne', and 'Pinza'

I put some pictures of Narcissus on the Wiki and also blogged about them.  Here are
the links if you're interested in reading or taking a peek at the pictures:……………

Other plants just getting started are Leucojum aestivum, Helleborus × orientalis,
Iris reticulata 'Harmony', and Veronica umbrosa 'Georgia Blue'.  As Jim says, all of
this is just a fraction of what's on the way, so I won't be bored either.

Happy gardening,

All of this is of course only a fraction of what's on the way, and with
relatively mild weather predicted for the week ahead, I won't be bored.

What is everyone else seeing?
