    Oh Pooh on you! It is back to cold again here. My stuff is trying to pop up. I have an amaryllis on my window sill, given to me at Christmas. It said it would bloom in 2 months; the green is only 3 inches high and will probably take another month to get even close to blooming. It kills me that winter is even INSIDE. Guess I will have to go BUY some flowers to look at.

    Mine have been up for a while and the forsythia is about to pop. The lilies, day and reg, are poking heads up along with iris, columbine, alliums. Buds on Clematis too.

    I planted some bleeding hearts yesterday in the Kitty Memorial Garden - and pulled some WEEDS!

    We still have ice on top of snow. I can't see the grass yet, but hopefully with the rain we're suppose to get the next two days it will melt the snow.

    Whoops, double post. :oops: I'm never quite sure how that happens. I edited for spelling, but that shouldn't do it. :roll:

    I noticed when walking the dogs yesterday that the snowbanks are still shoulder high. No ground in sight. Enjoy your crocuses.

    ssgramma, it must a bad year for Amaryllis. Mine is doing the same thing - maybe 6 inches tall. Usually it's very tall and blooming by now.

    Moles don't like daffodils, so those are safe to plant and will give you wonderful color. :thumbup:

    My crocus are in a protected area against my house and usually bloom at the end of February, but we've had a lot of snow this year, so they are not blossoming yet, but I can see a few green leaves starting. There's hope! :lol:

    I don't have crocus, but my daffodils are starting to grow. We have had so much snow and cold this year, I bought a pot of paper daffodils, and put them in my front enterance in January. I tell people that is to remind me spring will come some day!

    I had 3 amarillys bloom for me in the last couple months. Big red and pink blossoms in my bay window in the kitchen , sure looked nice and cheery. And yes I think my Snow on the mountain plants must be blooming ;-) .

    Double Pooh!!!!!!!! We have four foot snow piles in our yard and we are expecting a storm Tues, Wed and Thurs!

    We still have high school basket ball and hockey tournaments to go through before Spring even thinks about arriving in Minnesota. And all of you Minnesotans will attest to that, I am sure, right??????? It is two weeks and two days before Spring arrives, not to mention DST is coming this month sometime. This weather has to get its act together here. Of course I remember April 6, 1952, my confirmation day, Palm Sunday - Snowed like a sun of a gun!!!!!! So here, who knows! But I do love the crocuses, tulips, daffodils and hyacinths when they come up. Oh, it'll come. Edie

    Ok you all in SW PA send some to the west central part too.
    I have seen some in town but we are up on a hill and ours come a little later.
    Edie-I know what you mean my DS was born April 3, 1982 and we had a ice storm so bad that they wouldn't let me leave until the next day.
