    Maybe some snowdrops? Probably about all at our latitude, but we can always hope right? I’ll look back at some pictures of wildflowers from last year!

    Yes, sorry about the wildflowers! Maybe you’ll find pussywillows by your stream. They’re not out yet here, but yesterday I did clip off some forsythia branches to force into bloom inside.

    If naturalized daffodils count as wildflowers, we may have some of those blooming by Sunday! There is an old homestead up behind our house that has daffodils which have overtaken what used to be a house and out buildings. Figured the originals were planted well over 100 years ago…now there are thousands of them. Gorgeous.

    It would be hard picking the ones we have now, cause it’s only the teeny ones about the size of a pencil lead.

    Can’t gripe, it is not snowing but it has been raining hard. No pussy willows yet. Do have a daffodil or two. Our Lilacs have yet to start leafing out. The bird feeders do have birds that have paired up. I am still waiting. Spring, where are you?

    I can’t wait for spring to arrive here in the PNW. There’s so much to be done on my playhouse that can’t be done in the snow and rain!

    I won’t be picking wildflowers here for at least another month. Still lots of snow. Janice/Maine

    Spring? All that means in the Pacific Northwest is that the sky is going to keep on SPRINGING a leak.

    I didn’t even realize spring started Sunday! That’s how hopeless I have been feeling about never-ending winter. No wildflowers here either, but we do have a few daffodil shoots poking up through the snow.

    We have crocuses blooming, but they are staying right where they are – in the garden. Won’t be too long before we can pick flowers though. Daffodils are up next, and I always pick some of them.

    Aw, we still have about 8 inches of snow on the ground. I’ll see the first bulbs and green grass in May… :clover:

    It’s not a wildflower, but some of my day lilies are peaking out of the ground. Ready for some nice weather.

    We have henbit–a weed that has tiny purple flowers–blooming now. It’s a spreading nuisance that is impossible to eradicate, but it does give some color in the spring!

    It is 12 hours later and I can gripe! It is snowing and blowing. Spring seems to be receding into the distance.

    I just spotted two precious purple crocuses in my yard. It’s supposed to be nearly 80 tomorrow in KC!! Happy St. Pat’s to all! :clover:

    I would pick wildflowers if there were any. We still have some snow that hasn’t melted yet. Even without the flowers, I am enjoying the sunshine. Happy spring!

    We still have snow in our yard, so I guess I will be shoveling.

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
