Ahead Of Schedule or is Spring Just Around The Corner?

My Rijnveld's Early Sensation Daffodils started coming up in early December and have continuing to grow ever since. We have a wet snow on the way tonight so I thought I best get a few pictures. I took the pictures today January 27, 2021 and these plants are at least four to six weeks ahead of normal.

These daffodil beds have been very productive for the past two years and I hope these plants can survive the wet snow that is forecast.

I found this plant while walking through the yard today and I'm calling it Native Viburnum. The plant is about 15 feet tall.

Plants with winter interest
Posted on Jan 17, 2020 12:20 AM

A few years ago I started planting daffodils that bloom during winter. This has since developed into plants with winter interest. We have had a few weeks of warm weather which has cause the daffodils to get an early start. Here are a few pictures from 1/16/2020.
