Jonquil Fever and Groundhog Day

Those are two-inch jonquils or daffodils in the picture. On the last day of January, I noticed that they were peaking through the soil, about two-inches high. No matter what Punxsutawney Phil says, spring cannot be too far away.

I believe. I believe. I believe.

Your turn
What has been the first sign of spring at your house?


  1. we're living in a snow globe today...not amounting to anything, just enough to make it pretty! hope the cold weather doesn't nip your jonquils in the bud!

  2. I wish we had enough snow for just pretty. The deep stuff just gets ugly. I think daffodils have been damaged on the tipsof the foilage, but that never seems to really hurt the flowering. Thankfully, the buds are not yet there.It is really cold here--28 degrees F. The chickens are inside the house, so I am sure they really appreciate that this cold house is warmer than a box outdoors.
