I'm not going to append a list of what's blooming now, because we've had a 
few days with temperatures rising into the 60s F, and several hundred 
species are open in the bulb frames. I'll be out giving them their second 
spring feed today, in between rainstorms.

In the garden the smaller daffodils are open, many crocuses, and species 
peonies and magnolias showing their first color. Helleborus thibetanus 
flowered well these past few weeks, growing in a raised bed, shaded in the 
afternoon, along with many species peonies. All the early shrubs are coming 
into bloom, such as Corylopsis, a wonderful companion for bulbs that 
tolerate summer shade, since it has a "light" deciduous habit.
