These beautiful things are popping out of the ground at the NYBG Rock Garden!

Very nice. Today the very first daffodils opened in my back yard. The forsythia also started to flower today. Most of the trees have not shown any green yet, The tuliptrees buds are just barely starting to crack open. The red flowers on the maples are well along, but have not started to drop off yet. Looks like NYBG Rock Gardens are much farther along into spring than we are here.
