Yamamoto Dendrobium nobile in Bloom. 3.20.18
It is 30°F at 9:17 AM and expect a high of 33° with seven days of snow predicted as of the last forecast. I am itching to start seeds in the laundry room. We had one and a half inches of fresh snow yesterday and all that dirty snow has a bright new top layer. The fir trees have a snifter of snow on their branches. A beautiful sight with the sun shining through mostly cloudy skies.
Randy, it sounds like your robins don't care for your grapes, but you have more of other animals that eat a lot of your food.
Randy, just before reading your post, I was going to ask a question about Robins. Do you have grapes, and do robins or other birds eat many of them? Same question to everyone. I know Daniel has grapes for one.
When I lived 30 miles south of here, I had some grapes, but there were also a lot of Robins, and they ate 100% of the grapes long before they were ripe enough for me to eat. I moved before I got around to trying netting over them.
While I live about 200 miles north of Kathy, I, too, have a lot of green shoots popping up. It's nice having chives this early. I'm just afraid my fruit trees will blossom too early and be wiped out by a freeze--the last date being in May. We'll just have to wait and see.
I just love watching two male robins hopping on the lawn in tandem, eyeing each other, ready for battle. Where one goes, the other follows--hilarious!
The other way around here, Kathy - the regular magnolias bloom in April/May and the star magnolias later.
