Finally had a day dry enough to do some weeding, and look what I found!

Thumb of 2021-04-12/tveguy3/899950 Pussytoes

This little tyke is always the first one to bloom, but this year she's 13 days earlier then last year.

I also noticed a pudgy fan on Shindig, another one that's always very early.

That one is really cute! Hurray!

My Shindig survived and put up a couple of blooms already too.

Thanks, It's early though, and we have about 4 or 5 nights of frost coming, so I will most likely be a while before it continues. But it is on the way! Smiling

Two Thumbs Up had 3 open blooms this morning. Such a good grower, showed color through the several nights of frost and still opened without damage.
