Hi. Me too. I have a few various daffodils poking up. Some old fashioned doubles are showing buds and lots of leaf tips. I know they weren't expecting THIS kind of cold!

Actually, my crocuses have been *blooming* for a little over a week now. I imagine they're now all frozen over.

The narcissus leaves have been growing for quite some time now. I think they'll be okay. Thank goodness they weren't blooming yet.

I planted soooo many bulbs ,but forgot to fertilize.I had 2 trees cut down by the county(too close to road).So I have more gardens to plan out.I have MS,so I feel like I'm on borrowed time.I walk pretty okay,an occasional stumble,but I can deal.I love gardening,can't wait to see what comes up this spring.

Sos07: Glad to see you posting. I wouldn't worry about not fertilizing -- bulbs are pretty tough. You can fertilize when the bulbs first start showing signs of life in the spring...
