I went outside to check it out, and look at what I found.
They're back. Thanks for the tip, K.
I did drag out the hoses this morning and water. So it should pour with rain now. But just a flurry of snow so far. Nothing has sprouted in the box, it's been about a week.
The flower poll is over and it's a tie between lavender and freesia. I voted honeysuckle, for sentimental reasons. My second choice would have to be freesia, or any of the others...I admit, it was an unfair question. Also, I forgot lilac (one thing we can actually grow here), and jasmine. Anyway, thanks for voting! On to the next poll...
