so the daffodils are in full bloom, the early ones are fading already, the middle ones are going strong and the late ones aren't open yet.  the forsythia are just starting to get their green leaf buds, still a wall of yellow out by the road.  tulips, iris, daylilies are all above ground but too early for their blooms yet.  Asparagas has come up, which is good.  i feared it had been too wet for them all winter, but there are at least 4 stalks.  As they were planted last year, it is too soon for harvest.

February being what it is there was little news.  But yesterday it was over 70 degrees, and thoughts and hopes for the growing things are rising.  I attended a meeting of the Maplewood Gardening Club last monday, which is always a great thing.
