Ah, springtime in Somerset

I'm back in the office today and went out to look at our plantings here at the office.

Here's a sampling of what's happening out there:
  • some lilac buds are beginning to open just slightly
  • peony shoots are emerging
  • daffodils shoots are up anywhere from 2-6" tall
  • seedlings of Baptisia and Monarda are germinating
  • Knockout roses 1) never lost all their old leaves and 2) new leaves are emerging
  • butterflybushes have new green leaves
This is January 5, folks. Spring, by the calendar, is still 2+ months away (March 20). I don't know -- it's a little too freaky for me.
