There has been much griping, etc. about the delayed spring. But this photo was taken several years ago in a warm corner of my garden-in the last week of March. This spot looks about the same this year, which tells me that spring is more or less on schedule. Last year it was very early. I love daffodils, and have several kinds planted. They can bloom anywhere from January into mid May. Last year spring was "compressed",
so most of my bulbs and flowering trees were "done" by early May.
