We just have the crocus here, but they are wonderful. In about two weeks we will have the combined blooming of the daffodils and the flowering plums. I love the combination of pink and yellow. And of course green. We aren't called the Emerald Valley for nothing! I just hope spring comes soon. Seems like it has been cold and rainy here forever. Thanks for the picture of hope Michael!

Michael, very pretty. I don't have a lot of bulbs (something to do with that annoying persistent foliage when the flowers have gone by) - but I do have hyacinths and fritillaria coming up. Hellebores, hepatica, daphne blooming, but overall, my soil (clay) is wet for doing much gardening.

Kathy, Wednesday I opened my eyes in the morning to big fat snowflakes on the skylights over my bed. Today it's pouring buckets of rain and 39o. I have a box of hellebores, epimedium, and a 3' fuchsia magellanica I'm taking to my brothers in Portland tomorrow and had wanted to plant them for him, not leave them in the pots - better pack my raingear.

Thanks guys!

I took these at an old cemetery alongside Pacific Coast Highway in Mendocino County.

For anyone that's interested, there's more at: Photos
although they aren't flower photos.

That is a beautiful meadow! I have a planter of little Tete a Tete daffs blooming that look like I was sent a spring bouquet.

The Redbuds are blooming all over town now! Not long till the real deal then :)

Sure is. As I left for work it was eleven degrees with a 30mph wind. I springed out the door and into the car as fast as I could. It is 58 degrees in my office right now. When the wind blows, my closet door flys open. Thank the Lord I have an east facing window because the sunlight is the only reason its above freezing in here.

It all sounds a tad cool Harry. Brrr.

Don't think I could hang.

Michael
