Early signs of spring

Ooh, the snow drops are coming up. It won't take many more warm days like today before they start opening up fully. Anyone seen any pollinators yet? Also keep an eye out for the Asian witchhazels. There are some nice healthy ones by the south end of the Exhibit Museum on campus. I'll drive by and take a picture next week. This is a plant you have to have!

Yes, winter is long in Michigan, but if you are creative (and if you stretch your definitions), you can have something flowering almost every month.
