It's Beginning to Look a Little Like Spring

Hi all,

The very first Narcissus bloomed this past week -- Rijnveld's Early 
Sensation is up and open.  Some of the supposedly much earlier varieties 
are not in sight yet.  Maybe when they do show up I'll remember what their 
names were.

A little clump of N. asturiensis is also now in bloom.  It is getting 
buried by grass from the lawn and overshadowed by a red cedar tree.  I need 
to move it as soon as it goes dormant!

Trillium nivale is in bloom, and has been for at least two weeks.  One lone 
Trillium sessile is up and has a bud.

A few scattered Eranthis cilicica volunteers are starting to fade as are 
the Galanthus nivalis and elwesii.

The sun is even going to shine today!
