After a couple of weeks of very moderate-to-warm weather, on March 18 some of my bulbs very coming up . . . just in time for the snow.
Those are my Daffodils, all ready to go, but snow and ice on the ground.
By April 9, the shrub outside my office was waking up from Winter Sleep.
But the Daffodils were getting hammered by overnight hard freezes, and were not looking very good.
That does not do it justice; the flower was struggling . . . like this.
The ones that had not opened yet were doing better.
By the 11th of April, there were improvements. The shrub continued to do well . . .
. . . and the Daffodils were also doing better.
I like this next shot, from the back . . .
The next day, even better . . .
I even had me the first bug of the year . . .
Most of all, the white Daffodils were coming up . . . we had bought a mix, but the ones that came up early had all been yellow.
. . . and I still like the back shot . . .
The shrub? Going strong.
And then, April 13 . . . snow.
Also, my second bug . . . this time in the house. I employed my Specialized Bug Transport Container (a yellow plastic glass), and moved it outside. It was cold, so I doubt it was happy, but the alternative was death.
Next day, April 14, even more snow . . .
In fact, there were a number of snow days . . . until the 22nd of April.
Yes, there were still plenty of yellow Daffodils.
Here; I’ll show a mix . . .
The tulips are coming up and a few are flowering, but it looks like they were hurt by the frost. I’ll wait for the next batch before snapping a few photographs.
That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.
