Flowers blooming in Northampton, Mass
My winter vacation just started- this morning was the last day shoveling manure for almost a week and after our trip to the Philadelphia vicinity, I will call my boss and maybe start soon after. In any case, at the Smith College campus Hamemelis are blooming as is Chimonanthus praecox and both are quite fragrant. In the herbaceous perennial department, Galanthus (snow drops), early snow Crocus, Eranthus (winter aconite), and Adonis are all in bloom and some daffodils are showing buds. Back in Vermont, we have a foot of snow but I believe it got above freezing so maybe maple sap ran. I hope so, we tapped 4000 trees.
