And this one decided to over-winter and open. Strange year for us. If we get a legit blossom in February, that will make 12 months straight of blooms - which seems really strange in the foothills of the Rockies.

Another one. Taken on the 26th, I think? Early year. And 53 degrees today. Strange. They're popping up all over.

Overwintered. Corms. Not bulbs. I'm ignorant.

Loving these glimpses of spring! I often see the first blooms in February, but not this year- we're still getting lots of unusually cold weather. Your gorgeous blue anemones are tempting me to try them again. I've never been able to get them to overwinter and my garden is a zone warmer. I wonder if the large rocks help hold warmth? I've tried planting anemones in spring, but by the time they were about to start blooming hot weather arrived and fried them.

I planted them all in the fall of '16, some bloomed in spring '17, then they all disappeared for the summer. Interestingly, these double ones never made an appearance in the spring last year and I thought they were just going to be no shows, but they grew and started blooming last fall and like Asa said, the over-wintered buds are what is blooming now Shrug!
Currently, there is no sign of the singles emerging, so who knows?
Try 'em again Neal Crossing Fingers!

Really sorry about the focus on this one. But I get so tickled when they do this. Old breaking through new. There's something so affirming about it. "Life will find a way?"

Today...first blossoms of 2018. A few Crocus missed by the marauding Sciurus carolinensis !!!

Thumb of 2018-02-16/UrbanWild/5ce09e

And not to be outdone, my first Hyacinth... several in-shoot but this is the first in-bud.

Always looking for interesting plants for pollinators and food! Bonus points for highly, and pleasantly scented plants.

It's wonderful to see the gardens in different zones waking up. Like Neal, we have had colder weather this winter, and my bloom season is also later this year. The Hyacinths started blooming last week, and the crocuses started this week.

Suddenly seeing blooms here too! Hurray! Several crocuses are blooming, mostly tommies, and some winter aconite. A few hyacinths are starting to show color too. Such a relief to see some color and feel warmer temps- our high today is supposed to be 73!

I have been following this thread with joy (and envy) as I watch your blooms come alive.

If I may share and say WOO HOO! Big Grin
The Narcissus is always first and in spite of frost damage on the foliage the blooms are generous.

After the rain, all the Daffodils are face down but I am still glad to see them.

And in the wings, there are buds on the vintage Roman Hyacinth. Will try to share photos when they open.

Be content moving inch by inch because, by days end, the inches, will add up to feet and yards.

Fulfilling ambitious objectives is usually done one step at a time.
