Mad, you're late! I've had daffodils in bloom for over a week here in Nashville. They beat the crocuses.
I've got my first backache today - tilled under the winter rye and turnip greens in one of the gardens so I can plant onions and carrots tomorrow.
Kate - it's beginning to look a lot like Spring time

sigh.............Nashville. Spring in Inglewood on Greenfield Avenue, where just down the street at the corner of Golf and Riverside Drive a house has some golden crocus planted alongside both sides of the front sidewalk that always bloomed every year the second week of February. Always. As far back as I could remember them..........and I remember noticing them when I was about 9, so that goes back to 44 years ago. mmmmmm spring in Nashville, where the Southern Magnolia's that haven't been touched scent the air, older neighborhood houses yards have Quince starting to bud, soon the old fashioned bridal veil Spirea that is planted along the "hell strips" between the sidewalks and streets will start forming buds..............yes, I grew up in Inglewood. On Greenfield Avenue which turns into Riverside Drive. Shelby Park is where I got my clump of Zebra grass....LOL I'm sure Dr. Shelby had quite a laugh seeing me hidden in the 8 foot tall clump at the back of the park near the Cumberland River where the railroad tressle is, digging frantically while my son hunkered down in the truck all freaked out that I was DOING this............................and no, I don't recommend EVER doing this. Over the years as a budding gardener, I've done some things that I am indeed ashamed of. That one clump of yellow violets I dug up from a clump of eight doesn't come to mind. I fear the whole area now has been razzed. But other incidents come to mind...........I hope the gardening fairies have forgiven me by now for my earlier transgressions. Here's to Spring finally come......... madgardener, now up on the ridge, back in Fairy Holler, overlooking English Mountain in Eastern Tennessee these 14 years. madgardener

Yup, the Quince is fixing to bloom in my front yard. There's one honeysuckle bloom that smells delicious at Sevier Park - it's an early variety that wakes up the bees.
soon the old

I admit to bringing home Moth Mullien, Venus's Looking Glass and Shepards Purse from Ft. Negley, but it would have been mowed down so I felt no guilt.
Kate - transplanting the first wee tomatoes today
