As we’ve done battle with record cold and snowfall this winter, it can seem like there’s no end in sight to it. But even while Mother Nature is asserting herself in this season, she is ramping up for the next.

Under all that white stuff, bulbs are doing what bulbs do at this time of year and even if we still have snow on the ground at the end of the month, experience has taught me that we’ll more than likely see crocus blooms by the time March makes its entrance.

Truth be told, if I could dig down through the massive drifts in our backyard right now, I would probably find the snowdrops poking their noses out of the ground. Two years ago, the double ones were in full bloom on Feb. 20.
