I've been looking through my garden journal to see when the daffodils have started to bloom in the past (usually March 23-25), and looking at pictures just shows how far behind we are. The picture above is my front perennial garden on April 1 this week, and the picture below is my garden on April 1, 2012. What a difference in color! The redbud is blooming! The tall snowdrops are blooming! Even tulips. I know we just need a few days of warm temps, but come on. Usually my cherry tree is blooming on April 1 too. I just checked and there's just a hint of buds. The redbud tree shows no sign of color. The snowdrop are just a few inches high. I keep checking the D.C. cherry blossom site and it looks like another week before they are in bloom (peak bloom estimate April 8-12). I've also been checking on the bluebells at Riverbend Park, too, because I don't want to miss them and it looks like next week is the week to catch those.
Okay, enough complaining. It will happen.
