I have hellebores in bloom, not unexpected for this time of year but a delight all the same.
More surprising for Febuary 10, I saw crocus buds up but not open, and aconites in full bloom.
Even my yellow dogwood has buds partially open. It must have to do with those two 70 degree days that we had a week ago, even though the temps have been more normal with many snowy days since.
Another harbinger of spring-- those little fine weeds with the tiny flowers -- chickweed. Spent an hour pullling those on Saturday.
It will be time to get the rose pruning not done last fall finished before I know it!
