Spring Has Sprung In Idaho

It looks like today is tulip-blooming day here in the Boise area; here are some of the ones that bloomed in our garden this morning:

They say that the average last frost day in this area is around May 10th, but with nothing below 37F in the extended forecast, I'm thinking it's time to put the veggies into the ground...

... maybe next week. For now, I'm watching the Masters.

Hope the Glob Al Warming here in Northeast Ohio with it's 25 degrees and 12 inches of snow hasn't killed the tulips here at the Asphalt Island! lol

Idaho looks good!

Yesterday was totally gorgeous here, about 70 degrees most of the day. And it was kind of cool to see that yesterday, there were only buds of leaves on the tree in my front yard. Today, they'd emerged into little baby leafbursts. Woo!

Ah, but Mr. K--the rule of thumb is: don't plant until every scrap of snow is melted off Schaeffer Butte. I am not making this up. Welllll... you can put in some lettuce, early spring flowers such as pansies, pulsatilla, hellebores, primula.... all that cool stuff... But the frost sensitive plants need to wait just a leeetle while longer. And..besides..glancing at the clock at 5 a.m., 'twas 29 degrees F. in the Boise foothills.
