During the exceptionally mild February that we had in Ohio, the spring bulbs had all started sprouting early. The daffodils were tall and forming buds. Then in March we had a couple cold spells with more snow than we had in the entire previous month. The clumps of daffodils looked half dead amid the snow. Now the weather has warmed up again. The leaves of the daffodils sprang back to life, but there do not seem to be very many flowers. However, the few blooms that have appeared are a cheerful welcome to spring.
