Crocus have been blooming here for about two weeks. Then,
yesterday, from out of nowhere came about a dozen reticulatas. Daffs are
Enid Lake, MS where it was 72o today. I spent all day outside--
fertilizing irises, pruning roses, and cranking up engines for the mowing
season ahead. Even went to the woods and dug up two dogwoods and a maple.
Hope they will like their new home in the back yard.
