Crocuses, Daffodils, & Witch Hazel!

Here are a few first flowers from cultivated plants I saw around Portland, OR. I saw the Crocuses on Feb. 11th, The Witch Hazel on Feb. 18th, and the Daffodils on Feb. 24th. Most of the daffodils have yet to open around town and many of them appear stunted and particularly short. We had an extremely warm fall and many daffodils started coming up before winter even began. Then we received the largest snowfall in over 30 years as well as multiple dramatic ice storms.
