NICE! Seems like it has been a long winter here too. We had some hard freezes just when several Sdbs were ready to bloom and they did not look like much if they even opened. Usually my intermediates start up next, but tall bearded iris are jumping up. I hope to take some pictures later and post. Seems like yours are not that much behind my iris. I just have a few daffodils still blooming. Always liked the pasque flowers, but never tried them

This makes me happy, Tom! My pasque flower looks like yours, but no irises for me yet. Sad A few bases are swelling, so I'm hoping for a bloom by the end of the week. Crossing Fingers!

It does a soul good to see those little blooms after such a long winter! We had a late freeze and I am noticing several of my buds have damage on them Angry The dwarfs seem to not been as effected as my TBs.

I think it will be a while for the next ones, not seeing any bulging yet. I'm sure they will get here eventually Smiling

We are way late this year. I don't see any blooms stalks starting either. Glad to see Tom's little ones starting. Thumbs up
