Postby Scrapinthehat » May 12, 2008 10:57 pm worries...I love looking at plants...even if they are not mine. It is supposed to warm up tomorrow so I plan on heading out to check on the progress, if any. With any luck I will have a pic or two to share as well.

Good news!!! Most of my plants are showing signs of growth...sometimes it is only a couple milliimetres worth...but I'll take it. A few of them seem to have disappeared completely....I think the neighborhood bunny may be to blame. Overall, things are looking much better than originally anticipated. Amazing what some rain and a few warms days can achieve.

Wow comparison went out to check my peonies today and could just barely see them peeking out of the ground. I didn't have anything significant to take a pic of. I just might have some daffs and tulips in a week or so...better late than never. :? Thanks for sharing.
