But I couldn't resist. Why are all my posts starting I couldn't resist today? Well I guess since the weather is so nice and it's been so long since I could play in the dirt it makes sense.

Today it was the crocuses and daffodils. Even though this is definitely not the time to transplant. They were scattered here and there and I just had to get them all together and looking pretty.

I have the white, purple and purple & white striped crocuses. So I alternated the purple and white and put the clump of striped behind them. And then behind that I put the daffodils. It looks so much nicer now.

Of course there are still more sprouting up here and there. As I gain in strength I'll get all of them gathered up and transplanted too.

I thought I had dug them all up and gave them away last year. I had no idea they multiplied that much in just one year. It's amazing.

While I'm bending your ear. Anyone know why the crocuses bloomed with almost no stem at all? I think they had a stem last year.

My crocuses didn't bloom at all, this yr. I'm wondering if they started coming up in dec. and got froze.

Tammy, that's exactly what I was doing the other day :rolleyes: because my squirrels had dug a lot of mine up and planted them in other places where they weren't supposed to be, eek so I had to move them. wink

My Crocuses have stems but not nearly as tall as they were last year. frown Right now, I've got a tulip blooming that has hardly any stem at all. Duh

bulbs that have not been given a long enough cold period or was not cold enough during the winter will have hardly any stem...weird but it's nature!

Mine bloomed with very little stem, too, Tammy! I thought it was natural for them to be that short since I have never planted them before... shocked laugh shocked

Kenny, well, it was plenty cold this past winter and the bulbs were buried under sheets of ice twice this year. eek We did get a warm spell several weeks ago for a few days, but the ground was still frozen solid less than an 1/4 inch down. mad I should know because I tried to dig out some privet hedges for a friend and I couldn't even break ground. frown eek It was like concrete. frown

Thanks Kennyso, that definitely explains what happened down here.

I was right that it was the wrong time to be doing this. It went from 75F to 37F last night. Now it's going to be down below 50 for the week.

Good bye tomato plant. And who knows what will happen to the crocuses, daffodils and garlic that I transplanted. I'm assuming they are all gonners too.

Maybe next year I'll have patience.

It's enough to drive a person crazy. One day the heat is on the next the air conditioner. No wonder the plants are confused. I'm confused.

Hi Porter! wavey

It's so good to see you. wink I was thinking about you yesterday because I was on a road trip with a friend in St. Louis and we went by Bayer Garden Shop, but it's much too early for them to have anything in. frown

Yes, we are having snow flurries too, but nothing that is going to stick. It's really cold outside and seeing the snow make me colder. frown We had a St. Pat's Day parade here today and I got caught up in the traffic, eek but it looked like there were quite a few people there in spite of the weather. Duh nutz

Well the crocuses survived the snow and it's back up into the fifties. And I think the garlic survived. It's always hard to tell with the garlic. They will frequently loose their leaves. Why I don't know. They did it to me a couple of times last year.

Now the daffodils are starting to bring stems up. I think they will have some height on them which will be nice.
