Yup, the yellows have been showing for month, but these whites caught my eye today.
 

 
Almost all of them have finally opened.  No, that ain't snow.   ;D

Yep, the daffodils at my girlfriends house are in full bloom, mine are a little slow , with only one having a bud formed.  But I did notice some trilliums starting to pop up in the woods today..... won't be long

   Was 70 degrees here yesterday and predicted 21 here tonight. High around freezing tomorrow then in the 50s Friday.

   The first things to bloom here are typically cherries, redbuds and the forsythia (sp?). Our problem is a late freeze often gets the cherry crop. About every 5 years or so we get lucky and I get a decent cherry crop. Had my first bumper crop of peach blooms last year then a late freeze got all leaving me with 6 little green peaches part of the summer which all fell off before ripening. Nothing blooming here yet. I'm envious.

Kb, did the snow insulate the ground and keep it from freezing?

Azaleas have been blooming here for 5-6 weeks and the live oaks and black cherry trees have been growing new leaves over the past week or so.

Not really... Today is the first real snow we got.
I have not even put the plow on the tractor.
I just never got cold enough to freeze the ground.

No sign of spring here. I could see where the axles dragged in the snow when I backed out of the garage this morning. Didn't see any ticks or mosquitos, however. :D
