The Ice Follies daffodils, usually open and ready to be stolen on Valentine's Day, are still not open. There are more and more buds, but not one open flower to be seen. The first anemones are one wild blue anemone blanda and one blue anemone de Caen. There've still been no more hyacinths after that very early blue one, but there are buds galore. It looks as though pink ones will be seen next. We did see a fruit tree in bloom on the east side yesterday.
