The Flower Forum – Week One

The first sign of spring in my yard - Snowdrops!

Say “spring” and folks in Northern Ohio groan. Spring along the shores of Lake Erie comes slowly. Nevertheless, my bulbs are making a valiant attempt to push through the cold ground and winter debris.The snowdrops are blooming, and I see signs of tulips and daffodils. The hyacinths are a little slower despite their position under the furnace’s vent pipe. They get a little extra heat all winter, but since they’re my favorite, they get preferential placement.

Come back next week for an update on what’s making an appearance in the garden.
