Daffodils Before The Storm

The last two weeks of warm has launched a rush into spring. The daffodils are headed to a peak bloom a week earlier than the average April 1st date I have come to expect.

Spring and warm and daffodils are great. I just worry we are being set up once again for the oh so common killer late spring freeze.

This is a warm rain kind storm which is good, but the fine print showed wind and hail as menu options. Fingers crossed.

One mesh wire cover has saved the Oconee Bell flowers from the deer this year. It will be removed when more of their food supply has started to grow. Oconee Bell is an evergreen which makes it a winter dining target.

This morning as the storm arrives the wild cultivated gardens are alive with hundreds upon hundreds of perky daffodils.

Please, no hail. That would just be rude.

Gardening is a perilous activity. More so in the extremes of mountain top elevations.

Today the daffodils and Bulbarella's handiwork are looking mighty fine.
