March 1st Flowers???? Not Here!
On several of my friends' blogs today in Northern IL, I saw pictures of crocuses and snowdrops. So I went out to check my own garden. I didn't find any plants fighting their way towards the sun. I didn't find buds starting to peak out of the warm ground. No, all I found was snow. I stuck my ruler down into the snow and you can see the tip of the ruler (see the 12 inch mark?) sticking out of the snow.
Granted, this area of my garden is where I snow blow my driveway clean and dump the snow, but even in the yard, there's still at least 6 inches of snow. Well, maybe come April we'll start to see the bare ground. But not March 1st.
