Snow has been melting fast in the past week, and quite a lot of grass and earth visible. The only thing showing any active signs of life is the rhubarb, which has some nice red buds under the snow.

I voted for Daffodils, forsythia and other early spring blossoms, but actually those are done and now my tulips, early rhodies, my various Primroses and other early mid spring bloomers are blooming. My lilacs look like they'll open any day now. Spring is here.

My daffs and species tulips are about done too. The hyacinths (that I never chilled but put into a big half whiskey barrel six weeks ago just for kicks) are coming up nicely. Several salvias are already blooming: a new one called 'Eveline' looks wonderful and I just planted it in September.

Actually, I voted for daffodils and forsythia, which is true, but Redbud and Dogwoods are also blooming here in North Georgia. But we are out of sync: our daffodils are later than usual and it is much hotter than it should be: April 1 was 90 -- which is 20 degrees above normal. Yikes. We've skipped spring and headed right into summer.

Edited to say it's 90 again today! Give us a break. We have plenty o'hot weather -- let's not get ahead of schedule.

Over 80 here today. (84) The redbuds, lilacs, crabapples and dogwoods are blooming like crazy. Daffs are about done and tulips are starting. Hostas are coming up and my roses are leafing out nicely. Hummingbirds are back and the woods are that lovely shade of spring green.

I need to mow.

Daffodils, forsythia and other early spring blossoms, but just barely. In fact, the daffs and forsythia, just started blooming this past weekend. Another warm week is forcast for next week and I expect a lot of other bulbs to start blooming and for a lot of greening up in general.

Hi All,
Quiet all you 7 and 8s - I've only crocus here and one sorry-looking Hyacinth blossom! Oh, and a few Pachysandra have opened - they smell so good! I bring many pots in for (insert W-word here) and I did get a few Fusion Impatiens flowers - would those count?
Also, I bought some bulbs at the end-of-season sales and didn't get them into the ground till this last week, so they'll probably look just as sorry for the next two years unless I clip scapes. Anybody have any ideas on how to help the poor things? 10-0-10 fert? I want to feed but not overly-induce bloom. Suggestions will be appreciated - feel free to send them directly to my D-mail!

The crocus and daffodils are about to bloom, the tulips that the deer didn't eat are doing good, peonies and a lot of other plants showing life despite the cold temperatures.

I don't fit any of them all that well. Daffodils have been done for a while now. I don't have any marigolds but the petunias bloom all year. Redbud trees are blooming but you don't see crabapple and dogwoods around here. There have been some hot days, but it isn't summer yet so they aren't all hot. I voted for the desert wildflowers. Technically, this isn't a desert and there aren't many wild cacti, but the wildflowers are going strong now. In the yard, the bearded iris are getting started.

Everything is late for me due to the record breaking cold winter we had here - finally have my redbuds blooming, and the camellias just got done. Forsythia is either VERY late or opted to skip blooming altogether this year. Trumpet vine EXPLODED with blooms out of nowhere 2 days ago, and the roses, daylilies and amaryllis are beginning to set buds this past week - yippee, it'll look like FL again in no time!!!

Oh, and of course the azaleas all over town are putting on a beautiful show!

Epsom salt mixed with favorite fertilizer seems to be a cure-all down here to get everything boosted - I mix it with Milorganite in Spring, and Espoma in Fall.

Also, just saw this posted on Tinker's Garden a couple-three weeks ago, and may try it on several struggling babies this spring, not just DL's:

Daylily Booster:

1 tsp Epsom salt
1 oz Sorgum Molasses
1 Tbls Baking Soda
1 Gal. Water

Before planting newly aquired or divided Daylilies wash roots and submerge entire plant in this simple bare root recovery booster. Use the mixture to water plant when planting, poured over the crown. Daylilies can be given this booster again when bloom scapes appear, to intensify bloom and foliage color.

Molasses is a natural Bio-stimulant containing sulfur, potash and many trace minerals needed by plants. These minerals will be obsorbed through the foliage when used as a foliar dip or spray. Baking Soda will help control fungal disease.

Howdy All,
I found a few Vinca Minor faces today...the Raspberries, Roses and Dogwoods have tiny leaves, and so does my French Tarragon! So much for Z 5-6 HA! The Asiatics are 6" and climbing... and one REALLY early Dianthus bud. I just hope the coming two nights of 32* crapola doesn't set anything back (grumble, grumble...frost...grumble). We may get rain later so hopefully that 'll tic the temp up that one crucial degree...

@ Emma75,
Thanks for the recipe! I must have missed it with all the winter cleanup/ cabin fever/ get outside stuff doing. I shall try it on my poor abused Tulips and Co.

Forsythia blooms are holding on.

Plum tree blooms have said goodbye.

Crab apples are fully singing.

Crocus & Glory of the Snow, that's it. My neighbor has a few daffodills.

But then this is the way of the western slope in Colorado. The temperatures are very steady and don't jump around enough to fool plants. However it will be 66F by Saturday and then back down into the 50's by Monday.

Oh, it did snow the past two days. The mountains to the west got up to 16 inches of snow, fortunately we only got a few inches which melted the same day. Lots of very strong looking greenery from the bulbs and rhizomes in the garden. Time for some foliar spray & some surface applied alfalfa pellets.

The vultures have returned & the onions in the fridge have sprouted, a sure sign of Spring! LOL

HI All,
Well, it looked like late fall here this morning - the green grass had a dusting of snow, no leaves on the trees and all my plants potted up from last year were back in the house. Temps down to 26* tonight so I'm glad I've not gotten around to burning the leaves I had on my Iris. They'll be blanketing those and tiny Dahlia shoots. Anxious inspection of Asiatic and DL leaves showed no damage, but I'm going to leave them under their sheets seeing as how it'll be cloudy all day.

@ chucki - My husband and I visited your fair city last September and were just entranced. How long will the Deep Cold have a grip on you?

@ Emma75 - glad to see some things stayed to brighten your day; those roses are lovely!

Funny we know so little of that part of the world, but what the media portrays, which is usually the negative aspects of life. I like when Oprah goes to parts of the world to see how women live and what women in all parts of the world do for beauty etc. That is what is real, not the media. Anyways I love your yard and have bloom envy. My spreading petunias are just starting to bloom, Calendulas, roses any day and some miscellaneous flowers along with alyssium. Lots of seedlings took off though, so we will see. Ornamental plum tree faded already and all my bulbs came up but not one bloomed. grrrr!

To all,

My daffodils are finally swelling, all the tulip folliage looks strong with more than last year, all manner of things bursting out of the ground including weeds. The only flowers are still glory of the snow & crocus. The feral apricots are just about ready to burst forth so that tells me it is still early in our season.

Just about ready to try out Spray-N-Grow foliar fertilizer.

Time to put together the two stage soil strainer and get the iris bed set up. Moving about 40,000 Lbs. of dirt sounds like lots of good excercise for the Spring. A new garden is so much work but it is so satisfying working with virgin "dirt" to create a living masterpiece.

The first of the daffodills are blooming, foliage on tulips is very strong, the daylilly folliage is doing well and the border lillies are busting out of the ground with verve & vigor, the wild apricots are in full bloom and the agastahche are waking up. Everything however seems tenative. Maybe I am just impatient, but Spring seems to be shaping up very well for the western slope of Colorado. It seems to be a slow measured spring. This is very good if I can keep the deer away.

Leo Jammaron has been farming the valley for almost 70 years and he says things are behind by a week or two for the Roaring Fork Valley of Colorado.

I just did my first application of Spray-N-Grow, I will let all of you know whether this is worth your time and money.

I would appreciate a gimmie in order to fill my freezer and instill some fear in the deer, they are getting way to brazen! The deer come up to the front door, thank God they don't knock! The bear are another matter. One did open my screen door last year, but the main door was closed and it "pushed" on it. My .44 magnum is loaded and I won't hesitate with a bear as they have become a big problem breaking into houses in the valley.

In my zone 5A garden I now have about 2 dozen different Daffodils & about a dozen different Tulips.

My yard has different "micro" conditions (warmer, cooler, wetter, dryer, more sun, less sun, etc.) so some of these blooms are finishing in one area and just blooming in other areas. Cool!
