No changes here after the rain. Tulip, daff, more irises, dogwood all trying to do something. Wondering what "zone" I am really in. The overwintering weeds are doing well though.
Cool and windy today as things dry out.

A couple of daffodils are trying with heat from our stone wall., Something was trying to dig a hole near Wild whispers , but John filled it in both times, so luckily it got discouraged.

One tulip clump has some partly open blooms.

Baby Snowflake, Peterson 1963, did show up despite the cold rain, not a great picture though:

I'll have to check last year's logs, to see how this year's "grand opening" compares Hilarious!

Suslik seed came from the Caucasus so named after a marmot (sp) from there. No iris in bloom here as yet.

our first iris 'wild whispers' (coleman) opened today. It is a pumila from seed that John sent to SIGNA.

More buds seen; Eleanor Roosevelt will pop out in a day or so. Cosette, IB, Sass, 1934 popped out, but does not have a great form. It is also very short, but it is its first year.

You should be starting soon, Tom ! I don't see much happening in anything but the dwarfs, but, everything has gotten a "better color" to the leaves. A good rain would sure help , here. I think I will start "irrigation" on some of the beds, today Shrug!

I noticed a couple of bulges on a couple TB's starting, but nothing on the little ones. That sure is strange, even little Pussy Toes shows nothing, and it's usually the first.

Eleanor Roosevelt shows a single blossom on a short stem, no pix taken with the showers. Then found White Autumn King put out a blossom on a very short stalk; early IB's, as are Cosette and Eleanor. Yankee Skipper-SDB had one bud just starting to put out a fall so should be fully out by tom'w-#7 in the sequence of openings. None of the other dwarfs are trying yet. Seems like many are shorter than they should be this year. Soil depletion?, horrid winter?, whatever. Will make note of future stem heights.

Dogwood is finally beginning the blossom push. Seems late.
