All this wacky weather across Canada.. who else has signs of spring happening? My snowdrops are near the end and my crocus's are up a couple of inches!!! I must add that I was very surprised today [Feb.9th] to go outside and find my tulips up too....

Just spent the Feb 5-6-7 weekend in Vancouver - 1 rainy day and 2 sunny ones! Snow drops, species crocus, hellebores, some cherry trees in bloom at UBC. Daffodils are in bud, but did not see a single one open. Still - it is great - plus 5 or 6 weather - lawns are green and lush. Here in Ottawa, we are ankle-deep in snow and wind. Yecch!

Well it is definitely not spring on the prairies! Lots and lots of snow, we have had a pretty mild winter with the exception of a cold snap last week. Will not be seeing the tulips till June!! Time to start planning the gardens once again!

With all the mild weather we've had I was hoping that spring might come early this year. Some of the trees around here were trying to start budding just before this cold snap hit, but I think Old man Winter has put them in their place for now. I guess I'll just have to enjoy all the tulips I have coming up inside my house for now, and wait for everything else to come later.
