So jealous! I've seen a few pips but nothing like yours! I'm hoping they take their time coming up this year. We still have freezing temps at night here and I don't want to try to cover them... But I enjoy looking at yours!

Still have snow here; so I'm jealous too. But there's hope. Most of the snow disappeared last week from my front gardens. Those in back of the house will be awhile before the snow is gone.

Mine are emerging, especially in warmer spots. Yesterday I dug a start of Montana aureomarginata and went to my sister-in-laws and swapped it for a piece of Wolverine. My space for new plants is very limited so do not plan on adding many this year. The pictures are from last year.

'Liberty' is such a show off when it's emerging. Can't wait to see mine. It's my ritual every spring to count the eyes and see how much they increased.

For now, though, my hostas are still asleep, which is good because we're supposed to get a little snow here over the next couple of nights. Grumbling

Like Liberty. Don't have many hostas because they are eaten up too quickly. Those in containers do really well. Have June and Mouse Ears in-ground.

It's been snowing on and off today here in Wisconsin, too. Stupid weather. It's like winter ate spring and refuses to cough it up. Angry

I came home yesterday and checked out the Hosta garden and they all have come up. I need to clean up some more and I got stuff still in pots I need to plant like Painted Fern and one more Helleborus and Heuchera. I think mine will look real good this year! Here is one that got eaten by slugs last year I dug it up and put it into a pot and it has made a good come back. Fire Island. Thumbs up


Here are some of my emerging from yesterday!!
