Spring:

Are there any signs of spring in your area yet?. When I went out the front door to go to work yesterday I just happened to notice that the lily bulbs planted in my front yard are starting to poke through the ground. 8) :D

Our daffodil leaves are up about 6 inches - but they never bloom 'cause the squirrels eat them too fast :twisted:

I bet bang does - When I lived in Vermont my boyfriend hunted squirrel - if his mother made it and I ate it he didn't tell me what it was. I would always make a noise so they would run away - he finally quit taking me :roll:

No, signs of spring here either. Some bare patches are showing were the snow is melting. I wish that flowers were showing. Someday!!

Every few days, the temps warm up just enough to melt most of the snow cover. Even the ground has thawed out somewhat. But, then we get some more snow and the process starts all over again.

I have noticed that some of my MIL's daffodils are starting to come up. Hopefully the Thaw is soon.
