Hi Gang,

About a month ago Jim M. wrote that Narcissus 'February Gold' was blooming 
in his Maryland garden.  My own plants are just starting to bloom.  Today is 
Feb. 16, and this is a day or two earlier than I've got them down for in my 
notes, but I think my notes are very general.  So, I think they are blooming 
for me the same time as they always do.

We've had an exceptionally mild winter.  Perhaps, 'February Gold' just needs 
a certain amount of time before it can bloom in mild climates.  Perhaps it 
just can't make buds quickly in mild climates.

First hard frost was last night, 23 F.  All other frosts this winter have 
been 27 F or warmer.  Ten years ago this was USDA climate zone 8b.  Now it 
qualifies as zone 9a by a single frost, otherwise it would be 9b.
