Hi Bill,
I have signs of spring.  I have hardy pansies blooming and a primrose!  The
primrose has been blooming for a week, I had no idea it would bloom in the
middle of winter and it's even in the sun right now since there are no
leaves on the tree above it right now.  Gotta wonder about that.  I also
have anemones up but not blooming, and some daffodils are poking their
heads up.  January is definately too early for this here in zone 5.  Has
anyone gotten a Richters catalog yet?  I haven't gotten mine, and I even
ordered from them for the past 2 years.
