    Just the one so far - but that's Spring as far as I am concerned! :smile:

    See?

    I think maybe your daffodil is a little premature - if you dont look after it I think that Jack frost will be coming after it

    And this matters to me why exactly?

    Look here, I'm positively thrilled beyond reason that you have a Daffy growing in your bloody yard; but, right here, right now, it's wet and miserable. The snow turned to sleet which turned to rain and heavy fucking rain is fucking expected all fucking day so I am fucking not really all that fucking concerned or fucking happy about some fucking ugly as fuck yellow weed which is just another fucking reminder that the fucking weather here is fucking awful.


















    I am fucking through for fucking now with my fucking rant. Any fucking problem with that?









    (and have a very pleasant day)

    I'll be waiting with my 12-gauge...

    Crocuses (croci? :confused:) are so pretty, they'll be worth the wait.

    My snow drops have been out for some time. I don't expect the daffs till March 8th :wink:

    It's a beautiful warm sunny day here - be happy for us Northy. :smile:

    We've had a few out since mid-January, but I think the frost the last couple of mornings will have done for them.

    I'm jealous, MB. My crocuses are fully up, but not blooming yet. A few of the daffodils have peeked out above ground, but they are a couple of months away from blooming.

    We did have a lovely ice storm last night. I'll be surprised if the pine tree doesn't have several broken limbs.

    I'm jealous too! We have freezing rain/snow mix but it is suppose to get above freezing today. Something to look forward to I guess. I Hate Winter!

    Could some of you take time from admiring your flowers and come shovel out my driveway? Thanks.

    I [SIZE=-1]WANDER'D[/SIZE] lonely as a cloud
    That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
    When all at once I saw a crowd,
    A host of golden daffodils,
    Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
    Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

    A poet could not but be gay

    Ironically it looks like a pseudonarcissus to me.

    I havent got any flowers in my garden but next doors cats seem to like sunbathing in it - I wonder if there's a connection?

    Hah, and lucky you are, if all the neighbor's cat does is sunbathe there.

    My neighbor's cat only spends enough time in my garden to use it as her personal, large, beautiful, well-tended litter box.

    Did anyone else not see the 'in my garden' bit of the title and think it was going to say something like 'in my arse'?

    I would guess you were the only one, pup. Wishful thinking won't get you everywhere!
