I live in Maine, and we have had a blessedly mild winter (sorry D.C.!). Usually March is still winter here, often very snowy. My snowdrops are always up in March, and they are a cheering sight (in bad weather or good!).
Crocus and daffodils are coming up too. I can't tell you how amazing this is, just as amazing, I suppose, as all the snow was this winter to my mid-Atlantic friends.
These are small species crocus.
And here's the witch hazel! I cut some for the house, it has a wonderful lemony scent.
More daffodils poking up through the leaves.
And lastly, an Oriental poppy.
And below, the orchids are blooming nicely indoors:
A delicious spring!
