The Early Risers

Except for the -8 degree polar blast that cooked a lot of evergreens, now shedding all their leaves, it has been a pretty mild winter with little snow. There has been plenty of cold, wet and icky 40 degree rain. Spring is coming early now with some 60 degree days. The snowdrops are in full bloom all across the mountain top.

The first crocus have started to show and the daffodils are pushing up from below. The hellebore are starting to bloom. 

The Witch Hazels bloom on. If spring is going to be early, we just have to hope another polar blast doesn't arrive to wreck things. More snow is to be expected. It's only the first week of February.
