Here in the deep south, we have had no winter-- plants from summer are still blooming.

No winter for us in Virginia either. Cherry blossoms will probably be in full bloom in a couple weeks.  I think they are predicting the 23rd as prime viewing time for them. That means spring is definitely here when they reach peak bloom.

Mild here also, no snow, very few really cold days.  My daffodil bulbs mostly gotten eaten by squirrels or rabbits or something so out  of 100 bulbs planted a couple of years ago I had one tiny plant emerge with a bud a few weeks ago and now the bud is gone.  Bummer as I really like daffodils.  At least the tulips seems to still be thriving.

I have always loved tulips. When I was growing up I thought they were MY flowers because they always were blooming on my birthday.
