Our poor little spring beauties are so confused. They open up during the day when the sun is warming us up, and then they get slammed with 22 degrees for the second night in a row. I have been searching for our trillium as well. I guess they know it is not time yet. This blackberry winter is reeking havoc on our flowers. I did hear that the sand myrtle shrubs are starting to open up just before the bluffs. I am predicting we see the sand myrtle up top in the next couple of weeks. The sun is shining on us again today. Hopefully it will help warm things up a bit. I am ready to retire my down jacket until fall.
