|Last year, I could use an outdoor cold frame for my transplants. The ground is still pretty cold this year.|
That's about a month late, maybe more.
There's also a half-hearted attempt by some bird to build something (a snow fort?) in my forsythia. This is a shrub that would not typically be readily available to nest builders. It is pretty densely pruned. With and bloom or leaf it only attracts the smallest, wrens and hummingbirds.
Again, rain today, which is better than icy sleet.
