Nothing blooming in NE Calif.  

We used to get multiple feet of snow (4100' elevation), but now it's exciting to get a little Krap!  Then it melts off and we wait for the next "storm".  It's all very hard on the yard not having a consistent hard freeze.  I'm seeing more bugs and die back.  I hope we don't get a false spring in Feb. as we do some years.  Instead of the usual -10,20 or 30 degree F, it is 45 F.  I haven't planted new bulbls for a few years due to the very thick (visibility in feet) smoke in the Summer and Fall.

Happy New Year to all. My New Year’s flower count here in Massachusetts doesn’t take long. Nothing is flowering outdoors. Not a thing. We had another of our iconic slush storms last night. The lawn is a translucent white with some little grass whiskers sticking through. Most of you don’t speak Icelandic, nor do I, but the formal Icelandic word for slush is Krap. (Yes, there is a little accent over the A. ) There is krap all over my garden.
