I wouldn't give up hope. They are tough. Tivi produces a succession of
flowers so if the earliest get nipped the later ones come through OK.

Heavy rains last night and today, coupled with the snow melt have
created a memorable 'season of mud'. Some daff foliage got nipped but
most other things look like they survived our warmer than average
January followed by cold February (-18F is the lowest temp we recorded).
