Here's a view of my yard from my quilt room and a close up of the daffodils and pansies around the still-dead-looking tree at the end of the yard. My Christmas Roses (Helebores) are putting on a bit of a show, and I have a lot of sprouts showing their heads, but they'll be a bit longer yet. The red trilliums will be the next ones to bloom - then the Leopard's Bane (which is still only about 2 inches tall). I feel happy to see the lawn not under 3 inches of water. I was starting to wonder if we were all going to float away for a while there.
