Spring Flowers

One of the key plant events we watch each spring are the emergence and flowering of the tiny Snowdrop flowers.  Last spring the Snowdrop flowers we have under a tree away from any buildings were in flower on Feb 18.  This spring they are about where they were last year on March 18!  They did try to pop up two weeks ago before the big cold spell but were hammered back by the extreme cold and snow.  These are one tough little flower that can seem to emerge when the ground is still frozen solid barely 5 cm below the surface. 

On the weather front it was another 12 C day in the Bella Coola Valley, but not as sunny as yesterday.  Grizzly
