We're having an unseasonable warm winter so far and I've been reading that it's tricking a lot of the early spring plants into blooming. To be honest, I haven't been out in the garden much lately and only yesterday noticed that this phenomenon is the truth ...

... the snowbells (? not sure of the name) have bloomed!

Does this mean that they won't bloom then come springtime? And the worst part, this morning we frosted over so now they're little frozen tear drop blooms.

Not only do I have bulbs that think it's spring, my rose bushes and hydrangeas started comning back. I hope the fact that they are now frozen won't hurt them when it really is spring.

Rosemarie, I think any of your snowdrop plants that bloomed are done for this year. You'll probably have to wait until 2008 to see them again. Maybe some in the group of bulbs kept their buds safe under the soil?

Yay! Snowdrops! (Galanthus)

These guys often bloom quite early, Don in Iowa had some blooming in November this year.

They will not be bothered by the cold and snow, look for them during the thaws and enjoy their optomism.
