    @eileen, we have snowdrop sprouts and also a few Helleborus blooming, and yes, I'm so looking forward to spring!

    @Tetters, Kent is nice, but England isn't for me. Speaking from experience I'm too Norwegian to move abroad.

    Droopske--Steady on, take your hands off your ears and stop shaking your head. Denial won’t help. Besides you have Helleborus doing things up there, as well as snowdrop sprouts worming their way above ground. Chuckle. This drama queen outburst is waaaaay outta character for a Noor. But it is fun to watch.

    Eileen, it is mahvelous, dahling.

    Thanks Loggie, I am not yet seeing snowdrops, but I am seeing bluebell leaves.

    Very nice!
    Daffodil are up a few inches here. Hyacinths are usually early but might be dead this time.
