This winter has been in sharp contrast to last, with hardly any snow. Last year at this time we still had large piles.
Our first bloom year was a snowdrop, followed by a winter aconite on March 10th.
A few days later we got a little sleet to go around it.
The crocuses will be up soon too. This year is our earliest first blooms since we’ve lived here.
