 I have a few yellow species crocus blooming. Muscari up about an inch, but 
no bloom.  Fritillaria  michailowskii up about 2", a few lycoris (chinensis? 
and radiata)   up about 3-5". Tree peonies still in very tight brown buds 
and no sign of any speeded growth. Kauffmaniana and Greigii  tulips showing. 
Other species tulips showing above ground and growing.   Iris spuria up 
about 5" .  Arilbred hybrid irises slowly growing and increasing in size. 
Hellebores showing flower buds and new leaf growths, old leaves are totally 
browned and flat on the ground.  Herbaceous peonies not showing above 
ground.  Adam in Glenview.
