Well I think we are getting closer but so far other than the winter aconites at school, I did see a witch hazel in bloom at Wave Hill garden in the Bronx this morning. Snow is receding faster, it is apparent the voles were as usual favored by the long period of snow cover, but so too were things like certain delospermas and other low growing plants. It rained heavily yesterday then got very foggy, today is very windy and cold but above freezing. Should be sunny and warmer tomorrow, maybe 50 but accuweather has a story about the cold front (fomer "polar vortexes") coming down on us again but of course the cold will not be so severe, just cooler than normal for March at times. Really would like to break out of this pattern it gets old fast. Inside the bulbs don't know the difference, various Oxalis obtusa clones are flowering along with some pelargonium species and a smattering of other bulbs like the red form of Babiana villosa. Ernie in NY watching the flag by the house across the street fly in the wind.
