Oh yes, those buds will probably bloom in less than 4 weeks. It's still a toss-up whether snow or ice might still come along, however. And you're further north than I am!
Hi Barb...Quite a bit further north! It's in the forties and raining all day. But in New England you never know! Fortunately daffodils are extremely hardy.
Our spring flowers are beginning to hurry...I just hope we don't get a late hard frost!
Hi Gwynneth...Late frosts are the pits. It's not unusual here for the wild blueberries to bloom with early warm weather, then get demolished by a late frost. Part of the AAARRRGGGHHH!!! factor of living where we do.
my bulbs are about equal to yours, we just got past a cold patch and now it is warming; even up to 71 today but night are cold by not below freezing.
Hi Linda....I bet yours will progress faster than ours. I'm ecstatic if we hit fifty.
Dearest Suzi,We get for years now, only the foliage but no longer the blooms on the thousands of daffodil heirloom varieties we planted. All fragrant. Luckily we do have numerous photos of their blooming years! Good luck. We just biked in 80.7°F weather.Hugs,Mariette
Hi Mariette...Your pictures of your daffodils are always a joy. I didn't realize they had stopped blooming.Have you tried spreading super phosphate a couple of times over the summer? It may bring them back. I never use bone meal as it sends out a beacon for all the little critters to come and feast in my garden.
Dearest Suzi,You bet, we tried everything but no results. Guess it comes from the many trees. They might give off something that interferes... Nature can be cruel and mysterious at times.Hugs,Mariette
