A little later than last year. But with the snow disappearing quickly, the first eranthis blooms mark the beginning of the gardening season. With temps expected over 50F today, we might even have some snowdrops and hellebores to go along with them. Gotta go cut down some grasses.
Update 2013-03-10: Grasses are cut down, and more eranthis are joining the party.
Guess snowdrops and hellebores will be a few more days.
