Snowdrop Time - How Do They Know?

2-19-16 SHORT HILLS: A correction to the last post—several neighbors said that they had low temps down to -22° on the night of 2-13/2-14.

It has warmed since then, but it’s still below freezing here. In two days the sun will be half way back to the Equator, and a month after that, it will be the first day of spring. I’m ready.

This weekend is supposed to be much warmer. If we have a couple of warm days, the snowdrops pictured below will bloom.

Snowdrops are up....

Flower buds....

Will open....

With a few warm days.
