  • I found my first one open behind the well house, the same day my brother reported waking up to 11 inches of fresh snow....... They say variety is the spice of life, this countries weather sure can be spicy.

  • Seeing them poking up through the snow can really warm you up when you need it most. What was the date on that snow?

    I would guess all of you folk's daffodils are Southern facing, maybe protected in a micro climate?

  • Boy, I am starting to get envious. We STILL do not have our first one. Of course we are in the high elevations of Bedford County. (well sort of high)

  • Ahah! You have those hearty Daffs. I have a brother in New Jersey who grows over 100 varieties, but I don't think he has seen any yet. I don't know how much snow is left on the ground but they might hae to grow tall for him to see them.

    I need to check.
