Yeah. I've had crocus blooming for a few days now and the smaller narcissus
are just getting opening up. The taller ones are always slower and, given
that they broke ground in December before the cold weather hit and froze
their tips, they may be a bit slower than usual this year. I figure that
Spring is here when I can smell the first Hyacinths and that will be a
my little white crocus's came up weeks ago and now a few yellow ones.
My hyacinths are up about and inch as are my daffy's. Slugs have
already attacked my tulips. Gotta figure something out...worry about
the neighbor dogs and cats though I do make sure they are not
around when I but the bait down. Seems it's mostly curiosity that
gets most cats and dogs eating, smelling the stuff. But if they see me,
they're likely to come check out what I've been doing.
It's another beautiful day hear in the Pacific NW. My 86 year old
aunt's lawn is calling out my name.
Sounds like a scene from Fargo.
Anyway, for slugs and snails, use iron phosphate (Sluggo is one brand,
and Home Despot has a house brand). Iron, a nutrient which you and your
soil need, and phosphate (It's the P in N-P-K). Safe for people and
pets, unless you have gastropods for pets.

Hyacinths (like tulips) won't repeat here; the winters are too mild.
But my grape hyacinths (Muscari) are in full bloom, making a carpet of
blue under my peach tree. That carpet is punctuated with red primroses.
