Well said Laurie!!  My feelings exactly (other than the deer).  My daffodils just starting
blooming today.  Almost a month behind two years ago when they starting blooming
April 18th.  My SDB's are about three inches high and my unchewed TB's in a protected
area are only about six inches high, the others are only a couple of inches high.

>Some of our iris gardens up north are still in MDB season

Some of our gardens waaaay up north are still in winter!  We're still  
getting sub-freezing temps nearly every night, and yesterday was the  
first day in the last couple of weeks when we didn't get snow!  My first  
iris bloom last year was 5/14.  This year our season looks to be several  
weeks - perhaps even a month behind.  Right now my irises are still  
struggling to put up foliage.  The deer are keeping every emerging fan  
trimmed to the ground because their natural browse has not yet leafed  
out.  The unrelenting cool weather appears to have soft rot running amok  
in my iris beds.  Am I tired of winter?  Would I be immediately and  
permanently banned from this list - if not the entire internet - if I  
were to express my truest feelings about our lack of spring???  You  

Laurie - frustrated and envious in the Northland!
