Here's hoping this year's bloom season helps compensate a bit for the
winter mess!

Winter here was definitely different - even tho the lows were nowhere
near as low as it used to get every winter (never got below 10oF here
and it used to regularly get below zero at least once), we broke a
hundred+ year record for average cold temperature. Coldest winter on
record. New territory climate-wise.

The good news - the irises look great. It stayed cold all winter, not
the usual zero one night, 75o a few weeks later in the middle of winter,
then back to the teens. Who knows, maybe IMMORTALITY will make pollen
here this spring ;-)

First "wild" daffodil opened yesterday. But this is the first time in
30+ yrs that bloodroot wasn't opening first blooms by Mar 10. Bluebells
shot up overnight yesterday, so it won't be long, but spring is
definitely off to a slightly later start here.
