Several crocus have staggered into bloom in the past week, along with Iris unguicularis and I. reticulata. A few primroses are flowering, and the first buds on hellebores are starting to open. I had Eranthis hyemalis in flower this time last year, but this year, not even buds are up. Meanwhile, in the cold frame, a surprise:  seedling Cyclamen coup are in flower at barely one year old. Several snowdrops are flowering. 

Snow is in the forecast, with freezing temperatures day and night, so bud growth has come to a halt for the time being. 

PNW coast, zone 8, finally below freezing
