we are 10 days behind...

Yesterday, quite by accident I noticed some tulips coming through the soil.  I wanted to post the pic so that people wouldn't think I'm a big fat liar.

This morning we woke up and it was snowing...still is.  I'm really happy I took the shot yesterday, cuz now they are under 4 inches of snow.  I took my ruler out just now and measured.  I'm debating on what time today I'll start up the snow blower.

There are two schools of thought; wait til the snow stops and you only have to blow once - OR - blow now and the next time you blow, it's easier cuz there's much less snow.

Today, March 13th and my tulips are nowhere close to where your tulips were on Feb. 22nd.

How do you know that it is 10 days behind??? Do you keep track?

Maybe I should try that??? That way it might get me through the winter quicker.

I have a garden journal that I used to keep track, but now I just keep track here in this blog. Last year I was seeing this type of growth 10 days earlier...I'm not sure that it means anything - some people may say that we're going to have a late spring, etc. I just think they started growing later.
