Pretty little flower, Dawg. I had never heard of it, so looked it up. Interesting info...!

My snapdragons, pansies, viola, and vinca are going crazy right now.

What is your weather like right now?

Thanks! Love your flowers, Cheryl, but round here we don't see them till April or May.

The snow has pretty much melted and the aconites are the first to pop up. Of course, that doesn't mean we're done with snow. We've had a few whompers in the past, both in March and April.

Ooh, pretty. Is that in your yard? Mine still has a couple of feet of snow everywhere, though it is getting shallower.

Yes, they're usually awake in February, but had been buried by snow so were slow to start this year.

Oh Dawg! Flowers, mulch, no snow. What a wonderful sight for sore eyes. Thanks for reminding me that spring is somewhere under my 3-4 feet of snow.

Hah, more like visits to the Sun...it's already getting too warm outside, so no relief there, either.

I have a major case of "Cabin Fever". We need to get a new coffee maker. I see a small road trip ahead!
I'm surprised your lawn is brown. Here they are green when the snow goes away and then they might turn brown when they thaw out.

Our temps have been in the low 60's but its raining over the weekend so I don't think it will be as warm. There is still some snow in our back yard. Lots of trees back there so it doesn't get much sun, even though the trees don't have any leaves, yet.
