I think that last fall I planted somepoppy seed in that spot and just wonder if this is what they look like when starting. It is the first time thatI have grown them I have no name for them as I got them from a friend

I think it looks more like a bulb, maybe a daffodil? Poppies come up with a lot less mass than that and not quite as early. You'll see them come up later this spring. Whatever it is will be nice for you I bet.

Those early spring bulbs are so hardy. And your poppies will likely be fine as they won't get going until it is much warmer.

It has been the longest winter ever. I'm just happy to see brown grass at this point. It will all be green in no time at all.

Those don't look like poppies to me either. I also started some from seed in the fall. I have something that has come up and am just hoping that is what it is. I never can remember exactly what I put where. Too bad I don't keep a diary. May be next year I will do that.

Dimmer, poppies are tiny when they germinate, I have a terrible time seeing them. Like tiny pieces of green thread at first.

These definitely look like they're growing from a bulb. The reddish tips resemble alliums. Keep us posted and let us know what they turn out to be!

Dimmer, most of my hostas are just starting to peek through the ground. However I see nothing yet in areas where the soil is colder.
